This desk design is a tad timid, barely more than a corner cabinet or standing workstation at first glance. More than a mere podium or laptop tower, however, it unfolds on all sides to make for a surprisingly well-packed place to stand, work, lean and play.
Within a contemporary, simple modern frame, a colorful mixture of paint and wood veneer call out various drawers, cabinets and other hidden functionality tucked inside the tight structural confines of this multipurpose object. An illuminated pull-out top shelf comes complete with mousepad, side shelves, sockets for printers, projectors and computer charging cables.
Set on wheels, this all-in-one workstation is mobile and designed by Sarah Meier to work for anything from computing and reading to meeting and lecturing. While it might look cramped for some of these conditions, it would be a great small-space office solution for workers with even less than a cubicle to work within.
“The Laptop Tower (LT) is a standing desk for use at home, in offices or in public settings. The finely crafted piece is handsomely finished with a combination of veneer and paint in different styles called “veneer partitas” (“Furnierpartituren”), henceforth (FP).”
“The Laptop Tower (LT) is a compact standing desk on castors. It allows the user to work ergonomically while standing or leaning, and it is a functional, space-saving piece of furniture. Serving as a meeting point, place to read or lectern, this mobile standing desk comes replete with an illuminated, pull-out laptop shelf with a mousepad, four lower shelves, and sockets for a small printer, projector and rechargers. The leather desktop can be tilted to a reading position. Its illuminated pedestal makes the tower appear to be floating. A single transparent cable supplies the Laptop Tower with electricity. The furniture may be finished with various kinds of veneer.”
