  • Minimal Wall Desk by Dario antonioni makes the top 5 list for DWR + Dwell Magazine's Live /Work Contest.

    DWR teaming up with Dwell magazine for the Live/Work Design Contest, challenging up-and-coming designers to create a new home-office solution that DWR could potentially manufacture and sell. The response from designers was overwhelming – we received 587 entries! Together with Dwell, we narrowed them down to 10 finalists and then opened up voting to the public. We exhibited the top 10 finalists at our booth at WantedDesign, a satellite exhibit that coincides with ICFF, and using iPads, attendees cast their vote for their favorite design. Now, with a little more than a week until the grand-prize announcement, we have chosen the top 5 entries.

  • Testing the Concept 

    Below are  images of the concept prototype to test the viability of the attachment method and easy of installation for the end user. You will notice that the placement and sizing of the wire management slot provides an ergonomic and properly placed handle from which the user can lift the desk onto its wall cleat.
