The MILK Desk that stands behind the concept that a desk should "hold a lot but show almost nothing" and that is all possible thanks to the internal wire ports and storage compartments of this super sleek computer workstation. The mere 55 x 25 inch provides ample work surface especially for today's smaller computer hardware, and there is even room for a sunken fish tank or potted plant to keep your mind on more visually appealing things than a computer screen. An electronically height adjustable base easily changes the aluminum frame from 28.7 to 48.4 inches and the left side offers square compartments that open on the top and bottom enabling the user to store anything from the typical office supplies, such as pen and pencils to electronics, such as an iPod. The MILK desk is the combined efforts of entrepreneur Soren Kjaer and Danish furniture manufacturer, Holmris Hansen A/S which was well received thanks to a viral web campaign that received 50k hits the first week alone.
While I personally don't like be changed to my work desk, the uber cool Sidetrack table may just change my opinion. A brainchild of design students, Jacek Barcikowski, Jennifer Kay and Martina Pagura, Sidetrack outlines your working (or lack of it ) routine by drawing a pattern. This feat is achieved by the built in sensors which tracks ones movements and the on board marker illustrates the movements on the table itself. Definitely not recommended for those believe in procrastination.
Writing all the time on Furniture Fashion, it is not often that we come across round furniture arrangements compared to the more typical square or rectangular shapes. Offices and public spaces that are seeking round or circular spatial relationships in their seating needs may be drawn to this type of arrangement. This product is called "Kurve" and was designed by Niels Gammelgaard. The design inspiration for Kurve came from a garden complex in Barcelona, Spain called Park Guell. There a particular bench mimics the shape of a sea serpent. More information: here.

I don't know how comfortable the super modern "Float" desk chair from Studio Vertijet is but is sure looks cool.

Mid Century Modern is still one of my favorite furniture design eras for many reasons and the Cavour Desk by Carlo Mollino is a fine example of what the movement was all about. This curvaceous design sure looks ahead of its time considering its 1949 release. Mollino's philosophy "everything is permissible as long as it is fantastic" is reflected in his body of work which included architecture and furniture design. The Cavour Desk features .86" thick, plate glass top which sits atop a graceful and sculptural oak wood frame and drawer compartment. 97.2" w 29.5" h 35.4" d $12,071.00 From Hive Modern

Could the ultimate conference room table be made of Lego blocks? If you think about it, meetings are design to solve the most basic of problems by "building" a solution so perhaps this type of design approach is fitting. If you attend a lot of meetings like me the harsh reality is that they are often not quite so productive. I could at least appreciate the Lego handiwork if it were in the conference room. Via.
