The unusual name of the 4.9 Desk has a story to tell: it reflects the designer Marius Valaitis’ desire to play with the concept of perfection vs. flaws. For that it’s almost a five, missing just a tiny bit. This translates into the angles of the desktop, which, at its end, has a “crack”, a slit that’s not just for storage but also to bring closure to the desk’s core idea.
The “imperfection” aside, all the details of this piece of furniture have been made with perfect accuracy. It not only brings convenience and efficiency to your work but adds a little bit of style to it as well. Beauty cannot be empty, that’s for sure. But the functionality can be beautiful.
