Drafting + Laptop Desk = The Slope Desk

Drafting + Laptop Desk = The Slope Desk

The problem with compact laptop sized desks…well, besides being small…is that not only do you give up surface workspace on top, but you're often highly limited in the storage department, a big deal for anyone who relies upon the myriad of tech devices and accessories related to the modern home office. British/Norwegian designer Thomas Jenkins offers a sophisticated and handsome solution: the Slope Desk.

The Slope Desk combines the sloped angled of the traditional drafting desk with the utility of a classic writing desk, with two hinged storage compartments within the table structure. The design accommodates perfectly for a laptop inside a cozy felt-lined interior (appears to fit a smaller MacBook Pro), with the other side suited to hold an external drives, stationery and maybe even a notebook if you still like to write things down. Now if it only offered built-in USB/power options, the Slope Desk could be crowned the perfect small space laptop desk.

The Slope Desk is available made-to-order via Thomas Jenk Studios.
