If you’re tired of working at your breakfast nook, or even from the couch, a Danish design company has got you covered.

Stykka, a Danish design and smart manufacturing company, has created a template for a desk that you can recreate at home using 100% recyclable materials.  

On the Stykka website, a statement explains the drive behind creating the desk. ‘In these COVID-19 times authorities around the world are encouraging you and I to work from home in order to stop the virus from spreading further. This has created an urgent demand for us to find ways to set up workstations at home.’

With sustainability in mind, Stykka has used 100% FSC-Certified recycled cardboard so that the desks can be recycled once the quarantine period is over.

Although the desk is made out of cardboard, the Stykka team worked tirelessly to ensure that it could withstand the weight of two grown men.
