The Lightbox Desk

The Lightbox Desk

We're pretty used to seeing the lightbox trick anywhere you browse on the Internet these days, but it takes a real creative to take a wall-mounted x-ray viewer and turn it into a desk any architect would love. Another shot (with less gratifying glow effect), after jump.

Interior design student Drew Wrights writes:

"I bought some wall brackets and mounted it perpendicular to the wall and now I use it to do trace work and over lays for graphic and interior design."

We dig minimalistic setups here at Unplggd and Drew's setup definitely fits the bill. Not only are the cords off the floor, but they're functionally hidden using the laptop to hide the cords that feed into the wall-mounted monitor (see Door Sixteen Anna's plug cover box for another example of covering up wires using books).

It's stylish, practical, and just the right size for a student apartment. The only problem is that it's got me thinking about tearing down some unsightly lightboxes in my parent's house to make into stylish office desks...
