The Flatmate wall mounted folding desk is an award-winning, space-saving desk designed by Michael Hilgers for Mueller (or Müller) Möbelwerkstätten. When closed, the Flatmate has a footprint of only 0.09 m², which makes it one of the smallest and best equipped secretary desks on the market. Due to its slim profile and its sleek, minimalist style, it can be used to transform long corridors or small rooms into a home office if required, or can offer a place in the bedroom for working. The Flatmate is ideal for both residential and commercial spaces.
The Flatmate is made with precision engineering with tremendous attention to detail. The high quality hinges enable the desk flap to be lowered in a dampened motion and creates a strong, sturdy work surface. The desk area is comfortable to work on, partly thanks to the beautifully bevelled edges. There is a glare-free LED strip light at the top of the shelf, together with an integrated power socket, USB charging port and a soft-touch switch. On each side of the desk is a panel which opens to reveal 3 storage compartments with space for a laptop, files and other stuff. The desk also includes an organiser set comprising a mobile phone / tablet holder, letter stand and shelf which can be attached to the back panel of the shelf. Please note the Flatmate must be attached to the wall (mounting kit is included). A matching plinth is available to conceal the feet of the desk, please enquire for more details.
The Flatmate is a larger version of the Flatbox, also designed by Michael Hilgers for Mueller.
