We wanted to find out more, so we asked him what it was all about.
“This desk is a design I came up with after unsuccessfully trying to find a desk for use with a zero gravity chair.
“The desk at the bottom of the page (in woodgrain) with just shelves front and rear was the original design but I decided to take it to the extreme and the result was the design at the top of the page and depicted in the animations. The large arch holds two slide out bays that will each hold a Mac Pro and battery backup unit. The arch also provides a support for multiple monitors.”
Multiple monitors we can understand. But two Mac Pros and 12 Mac Minis? What’s that all about?
“I wanted a unit that would hold at least two Mac Pros because I get tired of waiting for a test image to render and wanted to be able to switch between machines. I thought the 12 Mac Mini render farm would be just the ticket for rendering my 3D lenticular images because it takes 10-12 frames to comprise a 3D image and each frame can take hours or even days to render just one frame.
“The full blown desk was designed to replace the typical office cubicle with a 7′ x 10′, ergonomically comfortable, workstation solution based around a reclining zero gravity chair.”
Right now the PerDesk is just an idea in Peter’s head. But if any manufacturers are interested in turning into a product, he’d like to hear from them. Perhaps we should put him in touch with the OneLessDesk guys, although then they’d have OneMoreDesk, so maybe not.
