Making Your Mark is the latest project from designer Alice Naylor
In a web savvy age, we think know we know what a desktop is. These desktops are a little different; they’re the lids of old desks; they were rescued from a skip looking a little unloved. In the best traditions of re-cyling and design hacking I am giving these desktops a new lease of life. Well covered in graffiti (I’m still looking for profanities carved into the wood) chewing gum and the hopes and dreams of a generation of school kids, I thought they deserved better than being thrown away.

This product aren’t so much new as re-formed: each desktop has its own unique identity. By re-imagining a simple piece, loaded with the narrative of someone’s school life I am giving these wooden lids a chance to stick around a bit longer.
