A wildly adaptive design, Stilvill’s Crescendo C2 desk comes in three separate heights: “School & College,” “Secretary” and “Standing Desk.”  Although those size categories may be confusing to the average desk-buying passerby, Stilvoll will hope that you open up the various components of their traditional-looking table top to reveal the desk’s true nature: a versatile contraption that allows for several uses for any age or occupation.  Folding in-and-out in this-way-and-that, the Crescendo C2 desk incorporates engineering that’s practically unnoticeable until you start manipulating it in both width and height.  What’s most striking about the desk’s design contrast of deliberate simplicity in the use of rough, bare wood to look like a drafting table and the intricate interaction of mechanical components to allow for personalization per task. – via
