Two Tops Secretary from Moooi

Designed in 2004 by Marcel Wanders, the Two Tops Secretary was born of a rather fortunate accident. As Wanders recalls, “I made a mistake, I fixed the table-top under the supporting bars instead of on top, and found a space which was always there but was never seen, I created a lid to cover and to hide and change a few hundred years of classic table making.”

The Two Tops Secretary features a fold-away top for hiding away the home office when not using the second, lower desk top. Or the table top creates a useful primary workspace with ample storage underneath. For added functionality, complete this desk with the optional Two Tops Box in white powder-coated steel to tuck away files and paperwork.

Whether it’s a spaceship HUD or an old phonograph, nearly all electronics have elements in common, such as buttons, knobs, speakers, screens, LEDs and more. These elements can make or break the realism of a 3D model, but they are very easy to create with some proper tools and instruction.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to model and texture a Pioneer CDJ in Cinema4D, with realistic CD bay, buttons, screen and lights. You’ll see how to use primitives to do the majority of the modeling, as well as using boolean and NURBs to achieve some more complex geometry.
