Flux E-Desk

Posted on August 29, 2007 Under Design

Shane Crozier’s Flux E-Desk looks like something straight out of the future. Think Minority Report, think Blade Runner, think kindergarten circa 2025; this is what I, and I’d imagine Shane, could see school desks looking like in another 15 to 20 years. Granted, that will leave us with a ton of Eames and Day chairs — and those horrible chair-slash-desk things — to figure out what to do with, but I suppose we’ll manage. Shane’s Flux E-Desk is a simple, clean, seat and desk combination that features integrated cable management and a built-in storage unit (I think that’s the little flap on top, I’m assuming for pens and pencils, etc). I’d imagine the lack of back support could get uncomfortable after a day in the hot seat — ergonomics be damned — but then when did we start caring about comfort in the school setting? Either way, the clearly Apple-esque design is ready and waiting when we start shuffling the youngin’s off to school with laptops instead of lunch boxes.
