Convertible Compact Desk

August 11, 2008

This compact desk from Crate & Barrel ‘looks like a 30″ cabinet but converts to a 55″ full-size desk, making it a clever solution for studio apartments and multipurpose rooms. A quick slide of its top panel reveals hard-working amenities. When open, the top of the cabinet reveals generous storage space for a laptop, plus cubbies with removable dividers to stow paper clips, rubber bands and other smalls. Cord cutouts in back let you charge iPods, laptop and cell phones. Below are a storage drawer and one letter- and legal-size file.’

Care to guess?

Yeah, so apparently it’s a computer, the Enlighten Computer by Suissa.

Because of its unique form factor, Enlighten comes with a technology package slightly different than the rest of the Suissa collection.

 

Components that differ are: 

Enlighten’s design dissipates heat through the use of aluminum around the power supply and DVD drive and through careful venting of air into, around and out of the main housing.  By separating the power supply and DVD out of the main housing, we have been able to avoid a cascading heat effect found in many computer designs.

I usually like everything hidden but there’s something about this XX File Holder that has caught my eye.

The XX from Magis is a stackable file holder. Available in blue or white with anodized aluminum connection tubes.

i/o Desk Organizer

May 6, 2008

The i/o Organizer consists of modular ceramic and walnut elements which can be “plugged-in” to a sectioned felt and walnut base for customization. The design uses natural, warm materials that are ecologically responsible. In addition to the touch and interaction that is encouraged by the tactile quality of these materials, they also stand in contrast to the many metal and plastic desktop accessories currently available. Kaiju Studios is looking for manufacturing partners for the i/o Desk Organizer.

This ultra quiet, ultra user-friendly device not only gives you control over the temperature of your immediate workspace, it cleans the air of pollutants as small as pollen, dust and pet dander. thermal electric technology allows for both heating and cooling in a single unit and the GREENGUARD certified filter is washable as well as reusable (no harmful chemicals or reservoirs to fill). C2 uses less than 1.5 amps of AC current, approximately 90% less energy than the space-heater under your co-workers desk.

since the C2 is not a space heater, there are no heating coils to be worried about, and to help save energy even further, C2 shuts off automatically if left running continuously for more than four hours, eliminating the possibility of being left on all weekend.
