    I thought that such design has the oppression feeling….But is really very special

    Looks like back ache for anyone over 6′ .

    From an ergonomic point of view it’s pretty bad. When the cover is up you are hunched inside. Look at the position of the guy’s wrists when using the laptop; bent over the edge of the desk. Also, the shape of the storage underneath looks to be just big enough to hold nothing bigger than an A5 document without it hanging out the front.

    The wood version of the Cone of Silence?

    Yea, I know its not going to be very silent but then again neither was the original.

    Somehow it doesn’t feel like it will keep people away from looking in…bigger hood and probably higher too. Nice idea though.
