16 Designer Desks to Kill For

As lovers of technology many of us spend time at one place: our desk! There are an amazing assortment of designer desks around. In this post I’ve gathered some of the coolest, geekiest, and most interesting desks I could find!

Studio Desk

What desk collection would be complete without Milk? Of couse I had to include this desk. If you haven’t seen it before then be sure to head over to Milk.dk to see more of the Milk awesomeness.

MUJI

MUJI

For those minimalistic fans out there this desk is for you! The MUJI at MoMa is a beautiful aluminum desk.

iMac Table

Ok, so this one may look a little too much like elementary school. It is still interesting to see different desks made for Macs and PCs alike that take on new ideas. This one is by SmartDesks.com.

Also

This is an interesting concept for a desk! If you rotate it then it turns into a chair. More details here, at Behance.

    I have yet to see an iMac desk that ticks all the boxes and doesn’t look too pre-school in its design! But the VU.VU.VU. desk gets right what the iMac desk doesn’t quite achieve – smooth lines, slick and compact. Maybe it comes down to the materials…. ?

    Domestic workstation – what is that? Compare it to Rainbow, now that is a desk with some character. Imagine conducting a job interview sat behind that.

    Mungle could be used as a great big heat sink with an overclocked pc – could get your work done in half the day.

    The Fredrick from Ikea is a knock-off/takes a lot of inspiration from a George Nelson for Herman Miller design: http://www.metroretrofurniture.com/New_Website/31Herman8040Herman.html

Great for inspiration – and you can upload your own too. Oh forgot to mention – we like to tag our items as well with some hyperlinks.

    I agree with paul… no name bias here :P I have a huge L shaped desk at home and im always looking for more space.. I do audio mainly.. But maybe there is something to be said about the simplicity of these desks and making you think about how much you really need on your desk. At work its mainly filled with empty energy drink cans and paper..

    I don’t like almost all of them. There’s not much space on each one. I’ve got a really huge desk and I can’t imagine my work without it…
    How would you work if you had “Hacked Ikea iMac Computer Desk” or “also”? There’s not enough space for anything there.

    I have to agree with those in favour of large desks.

    Where do I throw my books, notepads, stickies, biros, brochures, multiple coffee cups with varying degrees of mold, millions of cables, cds, dvds, usb sticks that I dont use anymore, external drives that I dont use anymore, zip disks that I dont use anymore, cases for all of the things that I don’t use anymore, random unorganised customer documents, hard copies of customer photos and text, kids toys and drawings that mysteriously clutter my desk, bank statements, bank overdrafts, final warnings from banks, legal letters from banks solicitors…

    Realistically I need 6ft*4ft desk.

    “the coolest, geekiest, and most interesting desks” – maybe. Most useless – indeed.

    I’m still looking for the ultimate desk solution (for my needs) and have come to the conclusion that I need to be wiping the dust of my table saw this summer – after mapping it all out.

    I think almost all of those desks are really cool looking but I did not see one that is big enough to get any real work done. less than half the desks had room for a Wacom tablet your computer and paperwork. I just wouldn’t be able to get anything accomplished on any of those desks. They all look really nice though.

    How can you work on such a small desk? I need at least 4 square meters to put all my sketches, prints, coffee, other stuff and enoug space to move my arms freely. Looks good, but i think that form should follow function. Also in desk design ;-).
