The design of Apple products has influenced the look of other companies across the world for the better. Remember the other day I told you about a cool desk that a friend pointed out to me? Well it’s called OneLessOffice, and it’s pretty damned cool.
I think the tagline kinda says it all:
At one time, you needed a desk that could fit a mountain of paper, two-foot-deep monitor, printer, and CPU the size of a Labrador. Today, your computer is an inch thick. You have moved forward. It’s time your desk caught up.
The desk works similar to a matryoshka doll, in that it has multiple pieces that fit together in a compact space. It starts with OneLessDesk, which is the top half and keyboard tray of the bunch. Shaped like an upside-down “U,” these pieces slide apart on teflon glides. Underneath the desk is a tray and cord wraps, built to hold your router and other accessories. The keyboard desk slides out from under that, and even comes with a padded mat. After that comes the OneLessStand, which is a printer stand that will hold the average printer and still fit underneath the keyboard. Finally is OneLessFile, which fits underneath the printer stand, and also glides on the floor.
Ultimately, I don’t think this is the desk for everybody, but I do think it would be great for those people who live in small spaces and don’t have a lot of options. It’s $699 for the desk itself, and $1047 for the whole set. Pricey? Sure. But watch the video above and tell me it’s not cool.
