The Farringdon Laptop Desk won the "Prix Les Découvertes" award for the Loft category at the Maison&Objet fair in Paris last week. Launching with manufacturer Woodman, the piece was selected by the jury for its sleek design and small footprint, and will be available in the UK and France in late 2010.

The Farringdon Laptop Desk is FSC certified and made from wood from sustainable sources and with be available towards the end of the year from £299 (€349).
