Get a Desk for your iMac

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.

  1. Thanks Kevin!
    Thanks for posting the video. The folks who build them for me really appreciate it.

    Minor correction:
    The feet of the OneLessDesk and OneLessStand are polypropylene, not Teflon. Still a nice, slick material for sliding on the floor. The little “bump-ons” of OneLessFile are Teflon.

  2. yes it is very cool…but who can afford that these days…after buying a mac there isn’t enough money for the rent…lol
