Hack: the desk by Konstantin Grcic with a garage spirit.

A creative and practical system of desks, capable of joining rest and work, formal and informal: Hack designed by Kostantin Grcic and produced by Vitra, fits into dynamic working environments, of which its unfinished and experimental raw design is a perfect image.

Hack is a challenge to the modern conception of working desk and the symbol of a new way of thinking about the office furniture: design has to anticipate the needs of companies and workers, proposing different solutions, concentrated in one object.
Hack is a manual adjustable height desk (form 200 to 1250 mm) easy to close and move, thought a simple manual system, that improves its versatility.
The panels on the back and on the sides allows a better privacy and helps concentration.

At the bottom level the desktop can be covered with cushions and turn into a couch for a quick break or informal discussions.
The sensations of an experimental project, a “not yet finished” design given by the the simple and raw wood and metal structure, is thought to fit with the mentality of nowadays companies, dynamic laboratories of innovations.
