Der Schtandund Vorkin
Materials: PAX wardrobe door
Description: Ladies and gentlemen, this is Der Schtandund Vorkin: a highly mobile, ultra convertible standing desk. The table top is made from a red Ikea Pax wardrobe door and is supported by finely sanded and finished poplar.
The legs are Speed-Rail bars, mounted onto speedy castors. The desk is custom sized to the worker and suitable to those who would rather stand at a bar during their labor hours.
The upright standing orientation provides the worker with increased creative flow of ideas from brain to fingertips and is not intended for seat sitters (though it will accommodate a bar stool).
This particular model is equipped with a computer machine rail on top, a fire extinguisher below and a side mounted drummer's practice pad. (middle management options include crash cymbal)
The Speedy castors are for when the worker is asked to quickly vacate the office.
Execution was simple:
1. Measure worker (legs and arms).
2. Cut speedrail to spec.
3. drill (16) holes into work surface.
4. Mount and tighten bolts.
5. Roll in front of worker.
There is work!
