Sekretar Flatmate

Posted by Scott

The Sekretär Flatmate is one of those pieces of furniture that makes me think I’d somehow become 50% more productive just by having it in my house. That’s probably not the case, but it would look great either way. Anybody actually have one of these things? €990 seems a bit steep for me, but I could see how it might be worth it if you were short on space in some NYC studio or something.

Looks like a relatively easy build… the back panel looks just like one of the modular wall panels on mah cube at work. $900 though? I’d more likely spend that on an Aeron and keep my Jerker.

how does one insure vertical stability? seems like it would get knocked over quite easily if it wasn’t against a wall.

Looks like Simon beat me. I actually prefer the Ikea LUDVIG, despite it being thicker. I think the contrasting black interior is nicer and the front opening doors on the bottom are far more practical.

Well, I prefere this one over IKEA’s solution. The Flatmate looks more robust and I like the way, the bevelled edges fit to each other. And the material (multiplexed birch) should be a lot more durable than the IKEA version.

IKEA’s pricetag is nice, of course, but remember: You always get what you pay for. And try to move with their furniture more than twice;-)

Just a small dislike with this kind of furniture: Where would I put my legs, when sitting next to a wall that close?? :P
