MyBox Desk Prototype by Iiro Viljanen for Martela

Two MyBox prototypes on display at the Martela showroom and offices in Helsinki, Finland.

The idea behind MyBox is simple and straightforward — a desk or workstation that can be put away.

Designed for use with laptops and accessorized with castors, a bulletin board, cord management and a locking lid, the MyBox prototype by Martela designer Iiro Viljanen is an ideal solution for small spaces — while the desk's everyday mess can be put away, the closed lid still provides the function of a table or work surface.

The hinged lid (made from thin, powder-coated steel) supports a built-in, upholstered bulletin board. MyBox is surprisingly easy to move on lockable castors and its proportions allow multiple units to quickly converge into a larger conference-sized table. Transforming furniture with multiple functions is always a good idea in our book!

Iiro Viljanen also designed the James task chair shown in the pictures.
