When looking for a fine desk for your home office, we suggest Gabriele & Oscar Buratti’s sculptural ‘Gullwing’ table for Lema. The result of the designers' extensive technical research, the final piece combines effortless simplicity with a perfectly-executed structure that allows for a play of lights and shadows and is available in several material combinations.
Danish designer David Thulstrup’s versatile ‘Landscape’ desk in satin-polished steel is a dining table at first glance, topped with ultra-smooth, ultra-comforting Sørensen leather and comes with a discreet drawer to store your notebooks and electronics.
In our home office, there is ample space for the latest technology, such as Samsung’s slimline Galaxy Book S: a beautifully designed laptop with epic battery life. The first 'mobile PC' from the Galaxy brand, it combines the lightness and portability of a smaller device with the power and features of a computer. It includes a touch screen, slim USB-C charging port and software that keeps all your devices connected.
iPad Air is Apple’s latest all-screen tablet, a powerful piece of tech filled with creative solutions. Featuring an all-screen design with 10.9‑inch Liquid Retina display, the iPad Air is available in a selection of pastel shades and can be combined with the Apple Pencil so you can create on the go.
Connect your devices to Transparent’s pebbled-shaped ‘Acoustic Sculpture’ speaker, a design which is 3D-printed in starch-based resin and covered in plaster before being sanded down by hand. Its clear, crisp sound should help you find inspiration.
Add some colour and visual inspiration to your home office with Lavazza’s 2021 calendar, a photographic treat exploring the theme of 'The New Humanity' in collaboration with international photographers such as Steve McCurry, David LaChapelle, Toiletpaper and Christy Lee Rogers (pictured above). A true visual feast.

If you need an extra boost, we also recommend Anatomē’s Focus + Concentration oil, an invigorating blend of 25 essential oils (including Indian ginger, frankincense and cinnamon) to clarify your thoughts.
Hieronymus’ luxurious stationery, including its elegant silver pen and silk notebooks, are our preferred tool to jot down some notes when you can step away from the screen.
Established & Sons
Of course, a good home office is all about sitting comfortably. Try Sebastian Wrong’s ‘Lucio’ lounge chair ultra-comfortable and generously sized, it also comes with a side table that pivots for ad-hoc working.
Add comfort to your study with the Romby chair designed by GamFratesi for Italian furniture specialist Porro. A perfectly balanced swivelling chair that will help you through those endless Zoom meetings.
There is no great workspace without great lighting. Ilse Crawford’s dimmable ‘w203 Ilumina’ offers warm and directed light, with no visible light source to distract the eye.
To boost productivity, the best pendant lamp for the job in our opinion is Tobias Grau’s Team Suspension light (opens in new tab), which features innovative beam lens technology that allows users to adapt its intensity and glow.
