The Perfect Desk For Doodles And Note Taking

"Yep, let me just grab a pen and... wait a minute... there's a Post It note around here somewhere..."

Promising to come to the aid of note takers and ruin the productivity of doodlers the world over, the Memory Desk of Kirsten Camara is a thing of simplistic beauty.

A student at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Camara's design has the appearance of a regrettable night shared between a wall papering table and a flip chart. An entire kilometre of paper can is secreted in a roll under the table, which can be cycled through thanks to a set of winding handles, letting you record moments of inspiration, thoughts or just liberally pour your brain all over.

"I've come to realise that I'm somewhat obsessed with how we remember the past," Camara writes on her project page. "This is the latest instalment in that series and a more serious attempt at furniture making. There are a hundreds of little things that we don't try to remember every year or even every week. Does the sum of all these tiny parts produce a new narrative on our lives?"

We're not too sure what kind of story you'd be able to construct out of a kilometre of phone numbers and "Feed cat" reminders, but it's a beautiful concept all the same. 

While it's not for sale, you can build your own version by following Camara's blueprints
