Martin by Ibride: A Domesticated Donkey Cabinet Makes A Versatile Design

This is Martin - Secretaire, a domesticated donkey whose photo may not indicate his size.  Though he carries the old fashioned designation of Secretaire - what is usually assumed to be a small writing table in the corner of a living room - Martin is not petite or old fashioned.

 

 

Martin is, in fact, 6'7" long, 5'10" high, and 2' deep.  This image should give you a better idea of Martin's stature.

 

 

Benoìt Convers, the male half of the design team at Ibride, created Martin, who, along with a host of other zoomorphic furniture designs, populates the Ibride showroom in La Vèze, France.  Convers handsome donkey cabinet is made of heat and water-resistant high-pressure laminate that will hold books, a computer screen, objets d'arte, or even tableware.

Here, Rachel Convers, the female half of the design team, shows how sturdy and stable is the Martin - Secretaire.

 

 

Perhaps Martin could become your home office?

 

 

But Martin clearly feels at home anywhere...
