Came across this fascinating hybrid of the shared desk scenario we have come to cal Big Table Desking, and conventional cubby work stations. This blobby mega desk defines a series of individual work stations, but is ambiguous at the edges to make a hybrid shared desk.

You can see a small switch pad at the right with up and down arrows. This lets you zip the desk up and down to suit the working height you wish at a given moment.
Much better photos and more information at their site.

A very beautiful wood desk by London furniture designer Leonhard Pfeifer via Design Milk.
I like the mash up of simple trestle desk, classic secretary cubbies, and stark modern detail that this desk brings together. Well done.

The blue ant studio design blog has started a new feature they are calling creative desks. Once a week they will feature the desk/work area of creative worker. Here is how they describe it:
We are excited at blueantstudio! we contacted some of the greatest minds in the industry and ask them to submit a picture of the desk where they work. It's amazing the wide range of design ethos that goes into each individual, ranging from peaceful and minimalistic to organized chaos. We will expand on this series every week and look forward to more in the future.
I love features like this because of what the desks reveal about the individuals relationship with the workplace. In almost all cases these are set up by the user, not somebody plopped in a cubical, or a workspace designed for them.
So tune in to blue ant studio regularly to follow along:

With the blossoming interest in standing height desks, I thought I would do a series of posts of desks available that readily adjust for standing height.
The ArchiMeda desk by Vitra includes a powered lift device that controls the work-surface height. It can be adjusted very rapidly from sitting height to standing height without disturbing your work in progress or your cabled accessories.

I'm starting to see some buzz about standing desks emerging, from the DIY realm definitely outside of the interiors and contract design circles.
All I can say is there are some great companies that have you covered here, and you'd be best served by a truly adjustable stand up desk over a coffee table stacked on a folding table. I know, real office furniture is expensive, but you are worth it. Anthro Carts has you covered. BioMorph has been doing this for years and probably has the best range of task tables that will stand with you.

From HOK's Work+Place blog, some thoughts are offered on the nature of work in the air, and work while you travel in general. Delta has a new business class interior that seems designed for privacy, to allow the business traveler some alone time to unwind with out obligatory mingling with your seat-mates. Or more interesting to us here, is this an effective airborne workstation?
