The Globus Scriptorium

This is the desk and chair ensconced inside a pod, providing flexible yet unobtrusive working space. By Dutch innovator Michiel van der Kley, who took his inspiration from examining the eclectic designs conceptualized by 1930s futurists, the 2 1/2′ diameter pod is comprised of two durable polyurethane hemispheres that, when opened with its built-in handle, forms a seat and a workspace.

The foam-molded seat swivels 180°, and is padded and luxuriously upholstered in leather, placing users 1 1/2′ from the base for comfortable, relaxed reclining while working. The workstation’s sturdy volkern plastic desktop unfolds and extends from the front hemisphere, supported by a hidden steel bracket; small items may be stored underneath the work surface. Requiring a mere 8 3/4′ sq. of floor space–roughly the size of a large ottoman–the 3 1/2′ L x 2 1/2′ W powder-coated aluminum platform supports the pod with two sturdy aluminum uprights that allow the pod to support up to 1,500 lbs.
