The Creative Adjustable Desk

The Adjustable Desk Project…

Lately, I’ve been investigating adjustable desk options that would allow me to stand and continue working. I’m not a sit for 8 hours a day type of designer. My cousin is a talented wood worker so I tasked him with researching adjustable height desks for me, so that we might build one.

In his research, he came across these awesome vintage/retro looking tables from Vintage Industrial in Phoenix, AZ. I love the heaviness of the table shown, with the crank wheel to adjust the height. There’s something so organic about the design that appeals to me, and just having something like this would inspire much creativity I think.

While the “space-age-techno” adjustable desks are nice and certainly functional, this steam-punk looking desk just seems invite you to come over and touch the surface. I also think the contrast between a computer/modern device sitting on this would look great.

So now it’s our turn. Armed with some inspiration, my cousin and I are in the planning stages of creating an adjustable desk for my office. I’ll keep you posted, most likely have something finished around the first of next year.
