Alada is a unique piece that seamlessly transforms from a wall desk to a decorative shelf in seconds. Born thinking about integrating the professional and personal life of the user, Its minimal design is key to the uniqueness of its functionality and clean finishes.

Consisting of 3 simple wooden panels, all of Alada’s parts are crafted to transform into part of the room’s decor and to give the user productivity and comfort in an “office” set for as long as they wish for.

Alada transcends time and trends, designed and built sustainably using FSC certified woods with careful techniques and by the hands of local craftsmen of the region of Iscar, Spain.

Small details are key to us, the edge of Alada floating folding desk is crafted in an angular way that takes away the visual weight of the piece, making it look smaller, and simpler. Its minimal stopper, designed to be as unobtrusive and practical as possible, helps to keep Alada in place when closed.

The result is a timeless folding desk that transforms and adapts to your day, when opened it gives you a complete home office experience, when folded it transforms into a shelf and adds to the decoration of your home.
