An exclusive version of the A Desk with a blue linoleum desktopThe A Desk features a tilting worktop and pen trayWarehouse Home Capsule Collection



Living in a small London flat, Alex Swain was unable to find functional and affordable furniture. Inspired by his love of typography and natural materials, Alex designed the beautifully simple plywood A Stool. The modernist plywood A Desk quickly followed, reminiscent of architectural drawing boards with its tilting desktop and pen tray. For Warehouse Home’s debut design collection, Alex has created a new version of the A Stool in oak and a striking version of the A Desk with a blue linoleum desktop.

Product Description

British craftsman and font designer Edward Johnston once said “Always write on a slope… never write on a flat table: it causes the writer to stoop.” Inspired by the Modernist period, the ByALEX A desk features a tilting worktop and pen tray. The blue linoleum upholstered desktop has a warm, soft texture for working on and contrasts beautifully with the A Desk’s white typography inspired profile. This desk will make you want to work.

“Design collaborations have been very important to me since I founded ByALEX in 2011. Warehouse Home has a very distinctive ‘reason for being’, which excited me. My range is bold yet refined and I thought there was a great opportunity to create new designs especially for industrial spaces and warehouse living.” Designer Alex Swain
