Museum of Childhood

Assistant to Peter Marigold.

A new information desk for the Museum of Childhood in London. The footprint of the desk is a rectangle while the service level is a rippling shape. The timber that stretches from floor level to service level twists around the form to achieve a smooth transition from one to the other.

The desk is built from hand cut solid ash bent around a CNC cut frame work. The structure is intentionally built as a dry-fit solution so that at the end of its life it can be broken down and the timber reused.
