Workstation Combines Bookshelf And A Computer
Design

A Dutch studio's compact design combines analog and digital workspaces in a streamlined structure.

The ‘Cabinet Chair’ by Dutch design studio Oppewal combines two necessary components of an office space, namely bookshelves and a computer workstation, in one sleek design. Intended for use in tight spaces such as a small apartment, hotel, library, or airport, the piece includes a chair, built-in monitor, and keyboard, along with the bookshelves.

The practicality of the design is questionable as it would be difficult to update the technology with the built-in computer, but the design certainly provides an inspiring example of an adaptation for compact living. The piece also serves as an example of combining analog and digital media in one small space.

The design studio’s namesake, Christiaan Oppewal, typically works with upcycled wood to create tables.
