Just as a shelter in a storm creates a safe haven, this streamlined desk and console provide a stronghold for essentials and artefacts.
The design is refreshingly simple, with virtually no excess features. The tabletop is bordered by perforated steel, forming a lightweight screen that wraps around the front and sides. The surface itself is crafted from a smoked oak veneer supported between legs made in steel. A lighter, oiled oak veneer is also available. The screen provides a compelling backdrop for contemporary artefacts, forming a focal point that lends itself to arrangements of ornaments and objects. Shelter’s versatility and simplicity make it a great fit for any type of environment.

Shelter, their streamlined desk and console for Northern, creates a compelling backdrop for contemporary artefacts and art objects, while doubling as streamlined workstation. Yonoh’s designs are characterised by versatility and simplicity, making them a great fit for any type of environment.
