Need a Designer Desk?

How's that? "What designer?" you ask.

Well, good question. Let's just say- they might be your neighbor. Or your classmate. And they might be the "next big thing."

Last October the 4x8 competition challenged Tulsans to create a desk from a single piece of plywood. Like a 4-foot by 8-foot piece of plywood, in fact. Thus the name.


Now those creations are going to be on display and sold in a silent auction this Wednesday. Proceeds benefit the designer's charity of choice. It's like a gallery crawl- but with desks.
Designed by local folks.
Made out of plywood.

4 x 8 Silent Auction
Brookside/3500 South Peoria
Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Beginning at 5:00 pm


The silent auction closes at 8:00 pm.

Visit these fine retailers for nosh, vino and to view/bid on the desks...

Unfortunately we were not prepared to interview the man whose buildings incite such extremely diverse reactions- but that didn't stop me from asking him several questions anyway. 

The home, completed in 1980, was designed and built by Wallace who is now 87. The expansive home is so large that Wallace spends most of his time in a room that was his late …
