More multipurpose furniture, this time by super minimalist designer John Pawson. This is his Sofadesk, designed by Pawson for Driade.

You can see in the drawings above that the design affords lots of broad, horizontal surface space around the sofa. So much so, that the surface at the back of the sofa doubles as a desk! Pawson designed this Sofadesk for Driade, an Italian furniture manufacturer. And while we don't have a price tag on this, we're sure it's expensive. We just wonder if this could be diy'd - maybe with a hollow core door from the hardware store and a lot of handiness?
