Workstation Concept

by: modgrain

I’ve been working on a design that can replace you current workstation (aka your kitchen counter). This is a functional workstation that can also be a conversation piece in any room. Especially if hand painted doors are incorporated. I would rather sit here and stare endlessly at Facebook or Twitter. And, once you see the status you were hoping for, you can close the laptop and fold up the top door to hide your obsession from any guests that might show up in person.

This is a concept drawing that is as fluid your daily status updates. I’m currently leaning towards the bamboo and walnut plywood combination with a white melamine highlights on the interior. The painted door on “graffiti” has a very urban or industrial feel. I like this juxtaposition of a brand new satin finished piece with a loosely drawn and painted illustration. The possibilities are endless for colors and subject. Commissioning your favorite artist to paint the doors could be a reality! Let me know what you think!

    Also… thanks to David Cole for the “pipe” illustration seen above.

    I have always liked the concept of these things. I’ve found some that don’t allow enough legroom if one is facing it directly. Definitely find a taller person for sizing! Of course, don’t forget a power strip, cable holes, etc.

    If I build it… it’ll be 100% custom with cable management!
