For MOST 2012 Carlsten Thostrup designed a modern writing desk. New York in the 1880s, one of the new inventions is the “Tension Tie”. An envelope with a string and button closure. By twisting a string attached to the flap button around the lower button, the envelope closes under tension. A really nice detail that Carlsten Thostrup wanted to take on. By wrapping the leather strap around the metal buttons the Tie Desk opens or closes.
