Angry Blogger Designs Better Computer Desk

Browse at Ikea or Staples for a new computer desk and they’ll all look sleek and elegant enough, until you get all your stuff out on them and then they become the usual ugly mess of cables.

They never look like this in real life. Table designers simply are not addressing the problem that the ever-growing mass of cables poses. Now one fed-up computer geek has designed his own.

From blogger Elzr comes this very simple but effective clutter killer new desk design. The desk puts a shelf – in the back.

On the shelf go all that horrible mess of all those cords and cables and whatsit. Now everything that possibly can go there – is concealed there.

The simple slot towards the back of the table, together with the shelf, manage to be both extremely flexible, and very effective in reducing clutter. And the widened holes at the sides at the bottom of the slot allow for whatever computer designers will come up with next.

As he says: “I’m no big fan of the corner cable holes in many commercial office desks (an unrelenting blight). A tabletop-length slot is a striking feature but it provides much more direct and flexible cable throughput.”

It is a simple, almost classic design, and it solves a real problem.
