A Wooden Writing Desk with a Secret

View all 6 Photos

The Wynd Writing Desk is a sleek piece of furniture by the Manhattan-based designer Piet Houtenbos. Made of European beech wood, the desk exudes natural elegance. Practical as well as polished, the slim design unfolds to present a compartment for keeping thin items such as a notebook or laptop. Simply press the wooden center, where a peek of the green felt is visible, to push down the storage mechanism, activating the hidden aluminum hardware and revealing the secret level of office supplies.
