Revolutionary Tambour Desk

I am a guy who loves cables and wires all over the place. When I’m working on some electrical components I like to have at hand on my “working station” all the tools necessary, but my mom freaks out every time she enters “the shop” ( my room). So I figured out that not everyone loves a crowded desk and some really like thinks simple with as few item as possible, I won’t understand them but it’s their choice.

With that thought in my mind I found this desk that offers a sleek, clean simple design but has also a special place for office accessories. A drawer you might think would solve this problem but not in this particular design.The tabletop was conceived to rotate, offering a hidden storage space underneath, more than enough for all your USB connectors, phone, books, duck tape, scissors and so on, not to mention the electrical plug and the power chord that is also hidden in one of the table legs.

So far so good I thought, but you can’t use this kind of desk against a wall because you’ll have to slide the top to access the underneath content. Well, here is the trick; this features a notched tambour that cascades down in the back, so you can use it against the wall. Only an inch or so is required between the wall and the table for a free sliding motion, back and forward.Designed by c.
