If you’re after something a little bit different for your office, then these desk designs could be right up your street.
1) The Treasury Table by Process
Process are a Czechoslovakian company that have been around for a few years now. They designed this toolbox-/takeaway-style desk, which can have multiple uses both at work and at home. Thanks to its many boxes, this desk is perfect as a technical workstation or for keeping tools.
2) Max Ingrand Desk
The DeLorean of the desk world. Max Ingrand designed this desk in 1968, and is made from a single piece of stainless steel (including the seat). This desk ought to make the Patrick Batemans of this world very jealous indeed.
3) The Life Desk by Haishan Deng
A desk that could potentially save your life. Haishan Deng based his design upon a principle in physics known as the “triangle of life” after the 2008 earthquake in China, where office desks killed or injured frightened souls attempting to protect themselves by hiding underneath them. Desks like these will hopefully prevent more unnecessary deaths.
4) The Khanapetko Desk by Krassi Dimitrov
We’ve got extendible dinner tables, so why not an office desk? Not only can this desk be extended into a workstation, but also has other great features like a draw for printers, stereo speakers and an extendible cable.
5) The Briefcase Desk
This leather-made desk is a basic desk with a briefcase design. Simple yet fun.
6) The Novanta Desk by Luke Rigall
A desk made with the constantly-connected online generation in mind. Another feature-heavy desk that has an iPod dock, speakers and, for the artists and designers out there, a drawer for drawing utensils.
7) Off-the-Wall Desk by MASH Studios
Ideal for places where space is limited or in a garage. As this desk is attached to the wall, it doesn’t need legs for support. The drawers slide open, rather than open outwards.
8) K Workstation by MisoSoup
Another space-saving desk, this time with the addition of a shelf. Like the Max Ingrand desk, this desk is made of a single sheet of material, in this case a sheet of bamboo. A great desk for those who work almost exclusively on the computer or for writers.
9) The Hideaway Desk and Chair by MTI Impex
An office that you can literally take with you. Disguised as a wooden box, this desk can open out and become a fully-fledged workstation.
10) The Slimdesk by Manuelsaez
Instead of drawers, this desk has several tops which can be retracted to store things. A very sleek desk with USB ports hidden in the hollow of one of the legs.
11) The Classic School Desk
The old school desk, which often came with an attached seat and a single huge drawer underneath the top, is still perhaps one of the greatest and most functional designs.
