THE BEST Desks

Hannes Vaht Desk

Hannes Vaht Desk

Less is definitely more with Hannes Vaht’s minimalist Desk; the 40″ table sports a two-tone birch veneer finish, under-desk drawer, and two rear-mounted swiveling laptop bays.

Han Solo Carbonite Desk

Han Solo Carbonite Desk

Tom Spina Designs’ Han Solo Carbonite Desk is perfect for crime and Sith Lords; the metal and fiberglass table sports a glass top, but you’ll need to supply your own flash-frozen smuggler.

TrekDesk

TrekDesk

Work is like an endless hamster wheel ride, but TrekDesk at least keeps the pounds off: for an adjustable height desk (sans treadmill) with a 72″x34″ desktop, it’s relatively affordable.

Flatiron Desk

Flatiron Desk

For $1,295 we’d scrounge our own materials, but we still dig this Flatiron Desk: it features a handcrafted top made from antique doors and a welded and riveted solid steel frame.

MacTable

MacTable

Designed for classrooms to maintain direct sight lines to the teacher, the MacTable is a semi-recessed desk which will hold 20″-24″ iMacs with curves that mimic Apple’s own aesthetics.

Concept: Openaire

Concept: Openaire

Nick and Beau Trincia have managed to combine a desk, a chair and a laptop case into one unit: the Openaire separates into a laptop desk and a plush chair when unfolded.

Laptop Cooler Desk

Laptop Cooler Desk

Too bad it’s Japan-only, because we’d love to get our hands on this Lap Desk; it includes a built-in USB-powered laptop cooler, mousepad, cupholder and folds flat for storage.

Sit-to-Walkstation

Sit-to-Walkstation

Spend too many hours sitting in front of a computer (like we do)? Steelcase’s Sit-to-Walkstation is a hybrid treadmill and adjustable height desk with digital console to monitor calories.

Bluelounge StudioDesk

Bluelounge StudioDesk

Bluelounge already organizes desktops, so it’s about time they released StudioDesk: a sliding top lets this minimalist table gobble up cables, resulting in a single protruding power cord.

Liquid Cooled Desk Mod

Liquid Cooled Desk Mod

Forget case mods: Popular Mechanics has built a liquid-cooled desk made with clear acrylic and aluminum; it also packs in seven fans, 13 neon lights and a clear, built-in touchpad.

Perfekt Desk

Perfekt Desk

So “kool” it had to drop the “c”, the Perfekt Desk is a 6 foot table that uses a mix of CCFLs and LEDs for some uber-out of this world lighting; check out that Borg light at the top.

Wogg Trouser Desk

Wogg Trouser Desk

Alright, so it’s not really called the “trouser desk:” Wogg’s 48 Desk/Table only looks like it due to a goofy-looking elastic fabric base that stretches as you adjust the height of the table.

Ci Mobile Desk

Ci Mobile Desk

Portable and versatile, the Ci Desk is described as a “home office on wheels;” not only does it feature plenty of drawers that swivel away when not in use, but sports a laptop tray up top.

Concept: Slimdesk

Concept: Slimdesk

It’s not quite as radical as the Quickie Bed, but the Slim Desk makes sense: it features three sliding panels that not only hide extra storage but increase the size of your work area.

Biomorph Maxo Desk

Biomorph Maxo Desk

Biomorph’s Maxo Desk is an ergonomic dream, with a height adjustable surface and tilting keyboard tray. At 91″, it can support 4-6 monitors for all your working gaming needs.

OneLessDesk

OneLessDesk

Heckler Design’s OneLessDesk is actually two desks in one; a lower deck can serve as a keyboard tray or secondary desk, but slides away under the upper deck when not in use.

Formtank 3Fold Desk

Formtank 3Fold Desk

Waste not, want a lot: other than the glass tabletop, Formtank’s 3Fold Desk is created from a single sheet of powder-coated steel. Check out this animation to see how it was made.

iDesk

iDesk

Now available: Paul Bichler’s iDesk was created specifically with Apple products in mind, with a clean, minimalist look, cable management features and built-in docking station.

Steelcase Airtouch Desk

Steelcase Airtouch Desk

Steelcase’s Airtouch is a height-adjustable desk, ideal for users with ergonomic needs. It can elevate from sitting to standing position in 1 second, yet requires no electricity.

Concept: Oficio Workstation

Concept: Oficio Workstation

Luiza Barroso and Quentin Vaulot’s Oficio Workstation concept makes a space for those who are both messy and neat, by designating one half of the desk for clutter.

Cavour Writing Desk

Cavour Writing Desk

Carlo Mollino’s classic Cavour Writing Desk was designed in 1949, but its swank cantilevered design and sleek profile are timeless. The 1/2″ thick glass rests on a streamlined oak frame.

Cadman Workstation

Cadman Workstation

We like West Elm’s Cadman Workstation for its modularity; mix and match three different-sized units. Also slick: powder-coated steel frame and frosted (or silver-toned) glass.

Globus Workstation

Globus Workstation

Doubling as an artsy sphere when not in use, Michiel van der Kley’s Globus is actually a work station. Rolling on casters, one half is a leather lined seat, while the other has a pull-out tabletop.
