A colored desktop flirts with a light steel frame in the design of the Journal desk. Journal is functional down to the smallest detail and has an inviting appearance, which makes it a stylish addition to any modern decor.
In the design of Journal, practical usage is addressed by discrete functional details. The desktop has an integrated wire grommet, while a steel drawer under the desktop provides space for office supplies. The little details of Journal help to create a pleasant environment in which good ideas can flow freely.
The desk is suitably small, so that it doesn’t take up too much space, and can be found in four calm colors.

Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
