This much blogged about desk, called homework, is often applauded for it’s monastic qualities. Certainly it is minimal and functional, but what fascinates me about this and the rest of Nika Zupanc’s work is the F word that is rarely mentioned around minimal and functional, It is “Feminine”.
The fabric folios fanning out, the little brass handle and crossing hinges all contribute to give it the air of a jewellery box. This €6000 bijou would certainly give doing homework a precious ritualised feel. I say blow the school fees on this baby to celebrate going back to school.
