From Sculpteo FAQ's:
Delivery...
Do you ship abroad?
We ship to France and the rest of Europe, to the location of your choice (home or office).

Is this also true for this competition? If so, non-European competitors would be excluded... :?:

Great compo title suggestion. I spent a lot of my time reinventing my work desk! Shame though that the winning prototype model won't be to scale! (1:1!!) ;) That would have been really useful!

Well I guess I'll jump in first then!

I understand there could be some issues with 3d printing due to thin elements, though you did head this design your ideal work desk!

This design I did some time ago as at the time I had my office in a room with a 45 degree corner and just nothing would work so went about considering a station that would suit any likely positions. The design was considered fully to house all workstation needs though still needed some fine tuning.

All cable management from PC tower housed in the main cabinet is via the vertical pivot post and to avoid cables rounding the rear side the top is separated to two unequal pieces with a narrow 20mm gap lengthways about 75mm from the edge. Stability of the three point supported top is yet determined though first considered as a tight fitting spigot and socket connection.

Cool design Richard and thanks for kicking things off. Love the swagged pipe use to achieve the swivel of the storage area. Only problem now is that you have 'set the bar' high!

re: the BAMBACH chair..

i dunno mike... that chair, while probably great in regards to back support, seems to be lacking in other fields ..for instance, i often like to lay on my side with head propped in hand while sketching ideas.. probably awful on the spine and wrists but there's a certain mental comfort(?) involved. we need to find a good combo between the two.

(didn't realize this was an scf based competition.. hopefully i'll find enough time to draw something up)

[especially because as of right now, i'm guaranteed 2nd place :D]

Ah dang Richard. That IS sweet. Reminiscent of Eames or George Nelson for Herman Miller. I love that style!

Now what am I gonna do? ;)

Just surfing and came across this:

Okay. Let's take this to its logical conclusion then. We all like lying down right? Then why not design a table that you work by, while lying down! Let me start by suggesting these chairs made by the Norwegian (I think they are Norwegian?) company Stokke, although they have now been bought up by Varier;

http://www.varierfurniture.com/

Pretty cool eh? The "Peel" chair (based on the unpeeling of an orange- I kid you not), is designed so that the user can lie down in it, as well as sit up......


Then there is the "Gravity" chair. This is some serious shit!! (see pix!)

Now design a desk that these can sit up to!! :fro:
