The Futuristic UFO Desk Of Tactile Comforts

It is widely documented that SATORI & SCOUT loves to show their support to designers of desks - we don't know, there is just something about desks that really make our 'aspirational lifestyle' buzzers buzz - and the latest export from designer Pavel Vetrov is no different. Designed for Russian home decor brand Zegen, Pavel Vetrov's simplicity-cool UFO lift desk is a futuristic reinterpretation of a typical standing desk, less all the unsightly elements that they often come with when required to facilitate a working computer that is elevated from the ground.

Offering a work surface that has been very nicely designed to raise or lower to a prescribed seated or standing position at the touch of a button (well, two), this modern-sed desk is made only more convenient by it's integrated vertical storage and display area to enable easy sight lines and comfortable working. Manufactured from dark ply, this stylish, modern and multi-functional work station facilitates such a raise/lowering of its chassis by way of two pneumatic metal stands, enabling a quick way to go from sitting to standing position. Behind the desk is a multi-functional stretch of reverse-side trays to allow storage for phones, tablets or books. Complete with a cord management system to prevent any unsightly wires and cables, is this desk but perfect for our ergonomic needs in every way? Also available as a desk without the mechanical raising/lowering capability, you can still benefit from the desk's very comprehensive display and storage areas.

On a brief second note, Vetrov's work extends to another collaboration, this time for Temahome whose Ply desk (the light coloured desk in our gallery) boasts an all-together slimmer frame, thinner leg structure, lighter hued wood finish and generally more airy design. With a similarly useful reverse-side storage area, which is your preference? Either way, an inspiration for any aspirational office space.
