This Desk Hides Your Mess With Clever Pop-up Accordion Folders

Nika Zupanc calls this elegantly minimal workspace her Homework Table. But work is probably the farthest thing from your mind when you feast your eyes on it since the table's devoid of drawers and clutter thanks to a clever retracting accordion file.

A small brass crank on the side of the table looks like a few turns will result in a scary jack-in-the-box clown jumping out at you. But it's instead used to raise and lower an expansive set of folders that can be used to hide documents that would otherwise take away from the table's stripped-down aesthetic.

It is available for purchase from Rossana Orlandi, but the fact that they're not forthcoming with the price on their site means it's probably one of those obscenely expensive pieces. [Nika Zupanc via Architizer]
