The Murphy bed of computer desks

It has a hideaway display and keyboard.


There was a time not long ago that home designers seemed obsessed with finding ways to showcase LCD and plasma TVs in innovative stands and other furniture. Lately, however, many efforts appear to be focused on computer desks.

Styles have crossed the entire spectrum, from minimalist designs to full gold leaf. But a common thread runs through all these models: space conservation and multiple uses for the desks. That's where the "Sync Desktop" comes in.

The desk features a hideaway display and keyboard, as well as built-in peripherals and storage compartments, according to BornRich. Just a concept at present, it exists only in the mind of U.K. designer Gareth Battensby so far. Which is a shame, because the closest thing we've seen in reality is a desk with trap doors.
