COOL THING WE WANT #427 | A Superdesk That Would Seat Each Of Our Contributors

February 13, 2014 



(via) New York City creative agency The Barbarian Group commissioned Clive Wilkinson Architects to create a 1,100 ft long “superdesk” so that every one of the company’s 125 employees could share the same desk. Of course ours would need to be smaller, but constructed so that there was room for it to grow.

    What is a “creative agency”?

  • Geoff

    “Creative agencies” are (of course) the scourge of creatives. Who hate advertising. But love neat desks. In advertising agencies.

    Hope that clears things up.

  • Brian Skinner

    I’d skate that.

  • Sean Orr

    We have 125 contributors?

    This desk is amazing… however just to be annoying, unless the photo is deceptive, one of the two pics of this desk seems to show a lonely guy sitting by himself at his own seperate desk… I a not so sure about playing up the fact that all 125 employees can sit/work at the superdesk, when it appears that they won’t…

    Thanks for the clarification, Geoff. Ties in nicely with the Scout schema.

    Oh, Thomas.
