I'm Seb, an architect working and living in London. Space is limited where I live, and I'd rather not have the place dominated by my workspace. Enjoying my home is even more important when stuck indoors during lockdown.


I couldn't find a compact desk online which looked good, was big enough for a full-size computer, and didn't take up loads of space. So, I designed one for myself. The photos on this site are of that working prototype, which I'm sitting at now, typing this out! 


When I'm done with work, I close up the desk and can relax without glimpsing home office clutter from the corner of my eye.

After some really positive feedback, I am refining the design for manufacture. If you want your own Lockdown Desk, you can reserve one here.
