UrbanDesk Goes from Bed to Desk (and Vice Versa) in an Instant
October 22nd, 2012
When I work from home, I work from my bed most of the time. It’s a bad habit, I know, but I love how I can just take a nap (or rather, a few naps too many) throughout the day when I get tired.
Apparently, a lot of people share the same bad work habits. Because if there were only a few of us, then I doubt we’d see something like the UrbanDesk make its way to Kickstarter.
As its name suggests, UrbanDesk is primarily a desk. It also happens to be a bed. The desk is hidden beneath the bed frame, which can easily be lifted up to reveal it. It’s a huge space saver, especially if you work from home a lot or are still studying and live in a pretty tight space.
The project is currently up for funding on Kickstarter. A minimum pledge of $700(USD) will get you your very own UrbanDesk painted in gray. If you’re into DIY, you can also just pledge $50 to get the construction plans for the UrbanDesk so you can build your own – assuming you’re willing to get out of bed to buy the parts and put it together.
