This ultra-thin desk is just like any good roommate: mostly invisible, but around when you need them. Designed by Berlin-based architect and cabinetmaker maker Michael Hilgers, “Flatmate” is a compact workspace that won’t take up much of your valuable floor space, but is just as functional as its full-sized counterpart. Thanks to its skinny profile, it can comfortably live in a narrow hallway or even behind other furniture.

Discreet and generous, functional and space saving this, this sleek desk goes virtually unnoticed. With its simple finish, it easily blends in with plain walls and disappears out of sight when not in use. While the white version is the most popular choice, Flatmate also comes in bold shades like black, yellow, green, blue and red.

Manufactured by Müller Möbelwerkstätten, the pop-up workspace comes with a table that unfolds and a side that opens up for storage. It also has an integrated power supply to charge laptops or tablets, and the back is outfitted with slats that can be customized with small shelves or containers for storing phones, pens, paper and chargers—or whatever you want.

In addition to its compact design, we love that Flatmate rethinks a traditional product and perfectly adapts it to today’s living and working spaces.
