Ideally, we'd see ourselves being able to completely unplug from our desks whenever we pleased, and our desks used as multi-functional stations that alter between work and everyday living. Our biggest problem with desks these days, however, remains the same - too many cords and cables that detract from the functionality of an actual "daily table." It's time to make a change to all that... time to make them invisible (or close-to, at least).
UNDER THE TABLE
A great example of this done properly is one of our favorite running examples; the "under-the-table" wiring management system. Above, Blupics
demonstrates how it's done by incorporating grommets
, screws, zip-ties, and cable management systems
A CORD BOX
Another great recent example was the DeskTop by Yummyguide studios
, where they custom built a table from scratch with all of the cord management in mind. Using their logo as the grommet holes, they strung their iMac power cables under the table to a Blue Lounge cable box
. There's also a convenient docking slot below the desk to house laptops when needed.
As for the case of tech, we're big on Bluetooth, as long as they're utilizing rechargeable batteries and contribute to a cleaner desktop system. Having things on Bluetooth also allow it to be tucked into small drawers (if your desk/table has them), making room for other tasks in your everyday work flow.
