B&W Studio desk

 

Challange

I was challenged to create a compact workstation that will contain all the client’s equipment. For this project, I was challenged to create a compact workstation that will contain all the client’s equipment. My first task was to build an Allen & Heath Zed R16 console into the desk. The second important element was to find out a way to easily and ergonomically incorporate an Axiom Pro 61 piano. I accomplished this by designing a full extension slide-out tray. The desk has a dedicated section for an Akai MPC 2500 controller. I also used fitted low profile lights under the shelve to highlight the console. All cables are hidden inside the desk. Lastly, I created a locker on the left side of the desk surface to conveniently store personal things.

Testimonial

  • After years of makeshift disposable furniture I wanted to upgrade my studio with a desk that housed all my equipment and was fairly ergonomic. Meeting Jarek was a blessing and his approach to craftsmanship & design matched my love of music technology. He was able to incorporate all my ideas and design a piece of studio furniture that not only for filled all of my production needs, but create something that is a piece of art in its own right. Beautiful textured eco leather with a deep grey veneer, pull out keyboard and hidden design extras like the secret compartments. I'm still blown away by what he created for me. Not only the desk but the matching acoustic panels and input on room acoustics remains invaluable. It's now such a creative space to work in, its inspiring just being in there surrounded by such amazing craftsmanship and having all my gear right at my finger tips. Jarek took my original ideas to heights I didn't know were capable and I could not recommend anybody better to work on your next studio project. His mixture of technical knowledge, acute detail and superior craftsmanship make him an expert in his field... Plus he's a great guy I can't thank him enough.
