If IKEA Made Geeky Furniture Part 12: The Sandbox
The IKEA Geeky Furniture series are only designs, and do not exist (yet). They are not for sale. The images are meant to parody the IKEA catalog, hence the prices.
At first glance there is nothing geeky about this desk (well, computer desks are inherently geeky, but I digress), however this normal-looking desk enables geeky behavior. If you look closely you’ll see a model train set beneath the glass top.
This desk has a display case underneath the desk surface to store all your geeky wares, which is an amplification of glass desks that allow you to put photos or posters underneath the glass top.
Imagine all the things you could put in here! A Lego town perhaps. A Warhammer board game. A Civil War diorama. A formation of Stormtrooper figures. Me? I’d put a table hockey game in there, so I’d feel like I’m overlooking a hockey game.
This design could be applied to a dining table or coffee table. I think it would be cool to turn a functional surface into a display case that shows off your geek spoils. At least you’d have room for that train set.
