Audo Copenhagen’s Eclipse desk is Fred Rigby Studio's fascinating exploration of materials and shapes, inspired by pebbles Fred Rigby had collected at the beach. When viewed from above, the shape of the top does, indeed, evoke images of pebbles that the waves have slowly ground round and smooth.
In addition to the unique top, the desk features asymmetrical legs that are also quite unusual: the top rests on one wide wooden leg and one steel column, which at the same time acts as storage space for a table lamp cable, for example. The detail not only makes the table distinctive but also helps to keep the desk tidy and to focus on working instead of clutter. “I want people to feel inspired when they sit at it. To lean back and touch the curved edge; to find calmness within to focus on work,” Rigby has said.
