We're serious about compact desks. And for the same reason, desks that convincingly hide their function as workspaces when the need arises hold particular appeal.
What makes this one a contender is the clever yet no-frills styling -- the top folds open to reveal flat storage and a workspace, and the front folds down to extend the workspace forward. No roll track, just hinges.
Another improvement in the field of compact desks is the drawer built into the top of the desk, rather than below, leaving more leg room free and uncompromised.
