Minimalist Work Station Pops Up Under A Bridge In Spain
Design

This floating work studio that hangs under the bridge is actually workable...and beautifully designed too!

Furniture designer Fernando Abellanas created a pop-up workspace under a bridge in Valencia, Spain, to show that empty and ugly spaces can be transformed into productive spaces with the right design. Could this be the answer the local government is looking for?

Abellanas makes furniture for Lebrel and by far, his pop-up workspace creation is his most imaginative one yet. Urban planners may want to take inspiration from Abellanas’ work as it is something quite out of the ordinary. Who would’ve thought that someone can actually work on a workstation that hangs under a bridge?

So, here’s how it works. Abellanas had to build a half horizontal elevator that will allow him to move across from one end of the bridge to the floating studio. The elevator is made of metal, pulleys, and a plywood box. At the other end, a minimalist work studio is waiting complete with a work desk, chair, and shelves. What makes this an incredible piece of work is that the horizontal elevator perfectly fits the floating studio. It serves as the floor and walls for the workspace.

While this seems like an awesome idea to make something out of nothing, unfortunately, this is not approved by the local government. It can be removed any time. Still, Abellanas plans to continue creating these studios in Valencia, but the locations will be a surprise.
