Rover Home Desk


Our award winning studio desk for home!

Designed + Made by So Watt

The Rover Home Desk is the younger brother to our award winning Rover Team Table. This new smaller size is designed to be a single person workstation for the home office or commercial workplace.

The flush work-surface with cutout access to our custom designed steel cable tray makes the Rover Home Desk super flexible. Make your work from home desk setup work for you with all the cables neatly organised and hidden from view.

Using Fenix NTM laminates for an ultra-matt finish provides an extremely durable and healthy surface. With antibacterial properties and the ability to heal scratches with the application of heat, this is an incredible smart material that comes in 13 colour options.

The Birch plywood base and understructure are finished in low VOC water-based clear for ultimate protection.

Assembling your Rover Home Desk is a breeze with only 5 components and a single Allen Key, you will be up and running in no time.

The Rover Home Desk's big brother, the Rover Team Table, was awarded The German Design Award 2020, Excellent Product Design - Office Furniture category as well as being included as the only Australian studio for the Dezeen Award Longlist 2020 workplace category.

  • 1. Will l need to assemble the studio desk?
    The Rover Home studio desk is the smaller cousin of the large Rover Team Table plywood workstation. The design is all about minimizing the number of components needed to create a stable and solid home desk while still sending it as a flat pack desk to help to reduce shipping costs.

    The Rover Home studio desk comes with easy to follow printed instructions as well as a video created by the So Watt team. Simply scan the QR code on the instructions to be taken straight to the video.

    We hope you enjoy building your own plywood workstation, the Rover Home desk is meant to be fun to put together with minimal parts, so take your time and enjoy the ride!

    2. Is the Rover Home desk also suited for offices?
    This beautiful plywood workstation is a feature piece in any home or office and is suitable for all types of work. By choosing your preferred size the Rover Home Desk can easily be used as a workstation for office fitouts by placing them side by side or even back to back in groups. They also look great as a stand alone desk if you have an open plan workplace with lots of space to spread out. Don’t forget you can request custom sizes, heights, depths, cable cut-outs and colours to turn the Rover into a truly customisable workstation design.

    3. What Product Can I Pair With The Rover Home Desk?
    So Watt design and manufacture a diverse range of furniture that can be used in lots of settings for plenty of different uses. Popular storage pieces that pair beautifully with our Rover Home studio desk are the Watson Shelves which keep the space open and airy, or the Clarke media unit that can also act as a storage credenza. If you prefer drawers to shelves or cupboards, the Riley four drawer or six drawer storage credenza was designed to match the Rover desk range by using the same high-grade Italian laminate on the desktop and drawer fronts. Pairing the Rover and Riley together will create a sophisticated office space that will inspire you for years to come.

    Complete the look and fill your home office with local Australian made furniture from quality sustainable materials.

    4. Can the Rover Home Desk be customised?
    We love to collaborate on custom furniture ideas with our clients. The process always brings new ideas and exciting changes that continue to inspire us! We welcome custom requests on all furniture pieces, and the Rover Home studio desk is no exception.

    Creating a functional workplace is really important to the quality of your work, and the enjoyment it brings! Everyone has different requirements so our Rover Home plywood desk can be made to any length, width or height you need. We can customise the cable tray access or add a drawer to the underside. Or maybe you want to talk about a custom shape for the worktop! It’s all possible.
