D117 by David Hsu
& collect
Desk 117 was designed with "cable-caching" in mind. An embedded power strip provides electricity for devices as well as light. In addition to a large access panel in the rear, there are multiple trap doors for monitor cables, ethernet cables, speaker cables etc. A large working surface area was deliberately specified for this desk for those of us who still use paper. The secondary surface is deep enough to hold a 27-inch monitor/computer, not to mention stereo speakers on the side. The D117 Collection follows the concept on Desk 117 where the ethos of modern work life should encompass cable caching.

David Hsu was born in Taiwan, raised in New Zealand, and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Columbia University in New York. While working in the field of information technology for photographers and designers, he longed to work in a more creative capacity so he returned to school in 2010 and received a master’s degree in Industrial Design from the Pratt Institute. David is currently working in Colorado.
