The IN-DENT Desk is engineered and built for a Los Angeles office consisting of 592 CNC-cut MDF pieces, which aggregate into a single angular mass joining the reception and waiting areas. The sectional variations allow the piece to transform from a reception desk into a seating area. The geometric shape is derived from two volumetric systems that intersect and interweave—one corresponding to the staff functions of the reception area and the other to the patient waiting area. Through this programmatic and geometric mediation, the furniture design provides different standing, sitting, and relaxing positions; tying the working postures of the office staff to that of the patients.
