OK, let us say that we succeed in clearing our desk as completely as if it were a desk in an IKEA showroom. It is free from piles of documents so that we easily can focus on the task at hand, without being distracted by stuff we do not need at the moment.
Then, it is a pity if what we see instead are a magpie’s nest of cords leading from our computer, printer, scanner and lamp over the desk, over the edge and down towards the floor. It destroys the free, airy, liberating ambience that we otherwise have accomplished.
Designer Beatus Kopp, a student at Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart has solved this in a stylish way. The table “aTable” has hollow legs through which the cords can run easily - together and concealed.
