Hello, Dear MOCOLOCO!
I am product designer from St. Petersburg.
Here is my new project ZEVAKA for Design Gallery/bulthaup from St. Petersburg ( http://www.design-gallery.ru/ ). More photos you can find here http://misonzhnikov.com/portfolio/projects/zevaka.html .
Multifunctional table “ Zevaka” is made for progressive modern universities, which consider the comfort and health of students to be the first priority. The author designer made a complete research in the field of specific behavior of students during their studying process. This table is created not only for ‘lazy’ students but mainly for those, who feel for a rest and taking a break while their working. For example, by opening two part of the table top, student can take a nap on a comfortable and flexible latex support. Moreover underneath the table one can found very aesthetical ceramic panel/tile for collecting used chewing gums (which are very often glued by students under the desk unconsciously). Smooth ceramic surface makes it very easy to remove the chewing gum. And some other features will make the studying process much more comfortable: a stand for cups, a holder for wires and cables, a hanger for bags. Special design of a hanger makes it possible to hang backpacks with a short strap as well as bags with a long one. Nowadays universities are also very aware of their students’ health- that’s why for a table ‘Zevaka’ a special condoms container was designed and built in the table leg. In the very end it is as natural as using napkin!
“Zevaka”- russian “??????”- the yawning person.
