Christy Oates – Crab Desk

Crab Desk by Christy Oates

Artist Name:  Christy Oates
Title:  Crab Desk
Details:  circa 2009  –  Plywood, maple veneer, steel hinges, acrylic paint, wood dyes
Flat:  48″W x 35″H x 1-1/4″T
Opened:  48″L x 14″W x 35″H (Desk) and 13″L x 13″W x 17-1/2″H (Stool)

Why It’s Notable:

This piece merges wall art with furniture and takes collapsible furniture to a new level.  A few folds and flips transform a picture of a desk into an actual working desk complete with a stool.  When not needed, both the desk and stool disappear into the wall.
