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.
