Set of furniture for a photographer

A camera is one of the objects I remember to always be there, I was shown the art of photography by my dad – he used to take analogue pictures for ages.

I decided to create something that would improve work and make it easier to perform tasks related to a hobby – a set of furniture for amateur photographers, and maybe even professionals.

The desk – a basic workspace, with a drawer and six electrical outlets under the top.

The photographer’s cabinet with an interior divided into parts: at the top there is space for little accessories, such as batteries, accumulators, cables, below there are drawers lined with foam, one for camera body, and the other for lenses, and the right side for a camera bag.

The designed set is functional, compact and elegant, the furniture structure has been shaped to give the design particular lightness, the links have been made of solid maple wood, the surfaces – of veneered board.
