This “Analog Memory Desk” Will Let You Record 1,100 Yards of Ideas and Sketches





Using hard maple, glass panel, and butcher paper, MCAD student Kirsten Camara transformed her obsession with how people remember things from the past into an “analog memory desk”.

With built-in mechanism for scrolling 1,100 yards of butcher, the unique furniture is designed to become the ultimate sketching surface. Imagine how you can put doodles, sketches and random ideas from several months or even years in just one very long roll.

Although the desk is not commercially available, Camara decided to share its detailed blueprints with a Creative Commons license so you can build your own analog memory desk.

For Camara, the analog memory desk will help people remember “hundreds of little things that we don’t try to remember every year or even every week”. Through the functional writing desk, people can list down random thoughts, phone numbers, and appointments in just one continuous form.
