Love It Or Hate It, It's Still A Steampunk Desk

June 26, 2008


The Desk Machine is a line of steampunkish desks by artist Dale Mathis. They all have a bunch of gears inside that turn and make you dizzy when you're signing TPS reports.

The desk features dozens of gears of different sizes that all sync together. The effect is such that the entire desk is "running" under its own power. The framework of the desk is wood with oversized rivets and bolts added to complete the look. Also, the legs are designed to mimic the look of swing-arms found on almost every motor on the road. The keyboard tray is also integrated into the gearing system.

Now when it says the keyboard tray is integrated into the system, I assume that means that it's constantly going in and out, effectively making it impossible to type. Which, quite frankly, you don't need to anyways if you can afford a $21,000 desk. That's what your blonde bombshell of a personal secretary (who was hired for her looks and not skills) is for. Isn't that right, you sexy little thing you? Haha, you typed that. God you're stupid.

Thanks Deena, the ratty schooldesk I got at the thrift store has never seemed more inadequate
