Best desk: IKEA’s Bestå Burs

One of the few things that made me excited on my last trip to IKEA is this new-ish Bestå Burs desk, which comes in high-gloss red, black or white. It’s so slim and simple, and reminds me a bit of A.G. Fronzoni’s classic ’64 series by Cappellini. I wonder how those clean lines would fare when they came up against real life though? Once it had a laptop, printer, hard drive and speakers wired up and ready to go, its lovely form would just be obscured with tangled cable and lumps of technology. Tellingly, one of the product shots shows two laptops marooned unconvincingly on top – who works like that? I guess some people aren’t cut out for such sleek design. (It’s still the best cheap desk on the market, though. For tidy people who never actually work, anyway.)
