This inspiring workspace features an amazing transforming desk

I've noticed that the tools I use end up shaping all of my work. As a defence, I try to beat this game by preemptively shaping my tools, like my desk (1). My desk is built to accommodate my idiosyncratic work habits. It transforms (via a linear actuator) into a standing desk for the working hours, but contracts down into a solid shape (like a normal piece of furniture) when not in use. In my one-room apartment/studio, this working and not-working positioning differentiation serves an important psychological purpose. Even though my desk is always in sight, it changes my relationship to the object, which helps me to disengage from work when it's lowered.
