Yesterday we posted about someone's standing computer workstation, a DIY setup using a desk and some risers. Here's a more polished, modern compact standing office designed by Ursula Maier, a space-saving and compact desk with a dizzying amount of storage and surface options, including an illuminated, pull-out laptop shelf with a mousepad, leather desktop four lower shelves, and sockets for a small printer, projector and rechargers, with just a single clear power cable tailing out to supply power...

Available in two veneer finishes to match either your white/silver Mac or your black Dell (or any other laptop), the Laptop Tower is offered in Bog Oak and Red Gum at architonic.com.

Bog Oak is a rare, exceptionally valuable timber. The veneer is light brown at the heart and darker toward the outer rings. It comes from oak trees that have lain submerged in peat bogs and marshes for up to 8,000 years. The chemical reaction between the tannins in the oak and iron sulphate in the water greatly darkened the wood and increased its density over the centuries.

Red Gum timber grows in the south-eastern United States, reaching a height of 30 m. It has reddish to brown-coloured heartwood bordered by creamy white sapwood. Red gum can be beautifully finished to a high polish. Logs with red and highly figured heartwood are especially prized. The veneer is particularly striking in combination with cream-coloured paint.
