"koloro-desk – a place to 'nest' at ease"
The koloro-desk has windows at various locations, opening to give a more open, accessible feel and when closed creating a small private room where no one can disturb you. Lighting and potted plants can be added, and there are windows for displaying the occasional ornament, hooks for bags, and a cord manager allowing PC use. Arrange the koloro-desk to make a study for Dad, a play area for a child, a hobby space or whatever you would like it to be.
