The Family Drawing Table

Growth Table by Tim Durfee & Iris Anna Regn

This may be the coolest drawing table / crafting workstation I’ve ever seen. Of course, I may be a bit biased since it is so perfectly suited for my five children.

According to designers Tim Durfee & Iris Anna Regn, the Growth Table is designed to “create an instant and intergenerational community united by the simple act of drawing.” What could be cooler than that?

From the designers:

“Children impulsively and un-selfconsciously indulge in spontaneous mark-making when presented with a place to sit, a rightly-positioned surface, and colorful instruments with which to draw. The Growth Table creates these conditions–but at a range of scales–to also attract older children and adults who share the memory of countless hours of childhood art-making. The structure activates a public outdoor or indoor space by providing a catalyst for spontaneous social behavior that is both exceptional and utterly familiar. When the form of the Table is multiplied or expanded, it creates a community scaled art-parklett, or transforms a public interior into a literal drawing room.”

    This is definitely the desk for me. I’d invite a bunch of my drawing buddies over and we’d use it!
