It seems to be the ongoing meme – Post a photo of your workspace. Just about every mac forum around the web has a thread devoted to it, flickr groups abound, even TUAW usually posts a rig of the week. We love showing off our Macs and the super cool (or cluttered) work spaces we use them in. Well I present to you, the ultimate space in which to use your Mac.

This is MILK. It’s “like an iPod, without the playlists”… Just go look, because trying to explain it, or present a picture free of explanation would just ruin the experience for you. It’s basically the desk Jon Ives would create for his super sleek Apple machines. This is one sweet desk.

  1. How much does this baby cost?

  2. Absolutely brilliant, and about damn time. I can’t tell you how many years I’ve been looking for desks that aren’t the same old particle board and veneer with standardized cubbyholes and shelves that aren’t really helpful!

    Milk looks great, and I’d probably buy one, but I hope this is more an indication of people breaking the mold as well. I want more excellent designs like this.

  3. Damn, I want that…

  4. Sure it looks cool, but what the hell is the support doing right in the middle of the desk? That’s where your legs go. That’s just dumb. Another case of form and function ahead of ergonomics.

  5. That’s cool, but the greatest desk I’ve found yet is the Burdick from Herman-Miller. Glass, aluminum and steel. It’s been around since 1981 or so, but still the best-looking and most useful “executive workbench” available.
    Not cheap, but you only need one for the rest of your life.

  6. Hmm. Thom, I don’t see anything desireable about the desk you linked other than it’s pretty. It may be built much better than your run of the mill office depot glass workbench. The features set the MILK apart.

    I’d have to use one to be sure, but the central support seems narrow enough and set back enough not to interfere with legs.

  7. I’m in love! This is quite possibly the most amazing desk I’ve ever seen!!!

  8. I’ll see your MILK and raise you a James.

  9. Not impressed. It looks a hydrolic car lift. The compartments are cute and all, but where does your Tower or Mini go? In fact, why does your laptop just sit there out in the open? Shouldn’t they have though about that when they were making room for a fish tank?
