Came across this workstation concept over at Unplggd. The Novanta was designed by Luke Riggall and features — among many other things — Speakers, a USB and Audio Hub, Monitor Stand, and iPod Dock. It’s definitely eye catching and a logical extension of your Mac setup, but it seems a little bulky to be practical. The apparent lack of adjustability would be a big problem for me too. But the cable management system looks very useful and the whole thing has a very utilitarian vibe that I’m liking. I don’t think this could be my main work desk but it would make a great secondary for the print room or a smaller office space.
On that note I’ve been really geeking out on desks lately. My last desk was a little too wide for my needs and the surface was pretty thick. It was getting in the way of my outboard rack and I figured something a bit more svelte would open up the space a little. I’ll try to post some pics next week.

Do you have any recommendations on a “brand” of desks (type of desk, desk producing company, etc. – I don’t think desks really come in brands per se?). I’ve been looking for a desk for my apartment next year with portability (i.e. not weighing two tons) and simplicity in mind… but the sorts of desks that Office Max sells aren’t quite making the cut.

I’ll be honest, I think this one is extremely ugly.

Those drawers seem so impractical. What if you want to get something out of one while sitting at the desk?

I´ve seen this desk now on several websites and I still don´t know why.
This desk is by far the ugliest I have ever seen.

I enlist to join the in-my-opinion-it-is-ugly side.

You should try visiting the offical website and looking at the proper published images instead of these ones which are over a year old.
