The Linear Desk by Form & Refine is comprised of the Austere Trestles paired with the Linear Tabletop. The trestles are constructed from solid oak wood. The tabletop is made from a solid pine core with a thick oak veneer applied to all surfaces. All the desk finishes will protect the wood from marking in normal daily use.

It was designed by Kristian Vedel in 1968 whilst he led the Department of Industrial Design at the University of Nairobi, Kenya. He found the classrooms were lacking functional furniture for the students. His trestles were the solution. Their folding capacity makes them easy to store when not in use. This is also a perfect solution for small living spaces; a room which is used as a home office could become a guest room in seconds.

This feeling was perfectly encapsulated in this quote by the designer.
“The starting point for an industrial artist's work must always be that he or she, from their own point of view and as objectively as possible, takes a position with regard to what they feel society and their fellow people need. They must personally take a stand on the existing possibilities and responsibilities.” Kristian Vedel

First class in every respect

We have bought a number of pieces of furniture from Really Well Made. Not only are we delighted with the items themselves but the care that is taken with communication, packaging and transport is outstanding. Clare and Lewis go out of their way to answer detailed queries about materials, construction and design - and are obviously very knowledgable. In addition they are always friendly and return calls promptly.

Herman Studio

This product is designed by
Herman Studio

Herman Studio was founded in 2012 by two architects; Helle Herman Mortensen and Jonas Herman Pedersen. Their work spans from textile, ceramics, lighting and furniture design to interior design.

A characteristic of their design is each objects’ clear distinct silhouette. Working with an identifiable outline for each object, makes the design stand out simply, clearly and recognisably. Their great passion for design is in addition to aesthetics especially about construction and the use of materials. They work using a methodical and sequential process between sketches, models and prototypes. Their design process often starts by studying construction methods which plays a central role throughout the entire design process in their own workshop.
