This curious workstation is posted today at MocoLoco. It looks to me like its made up of parts of old school wood painting ladders. But there is more to it than that. The designers describe it as:
The platform forms a new typology of furniture. It is not a desk-like object though the table top is a feature of it. The platform/frame becomes a toolbox for a different occupational needs, different job characteristics. This type of furniture is a feature bearer, not a one purpose unit as most of today's furniture, which impose certain way of work while it might not be the most efficient one. This opportunity-giving kind of design is becoming a new strategy for tight spaces where more and more diverse action are undertaken and where the traditional desk might not be the best solution anymore.
