Meet the Victorian Organ Command Desk, a working baroque computer desk made from a demolished church's 19th century organ.
Victorian Organ Command Desk
Meet the Victorian Organ Command Desk. Bruce Rosenbaum of Massachusetts home restoration firm ModVic literally pulled out all the stops when he built this baroque computer desk out of a demolished church's 19th century organ. He gutted the pump and innards, replacing them with three monitors, a 3GHz AMD Phenom II X4 945 processor running Windows 7 Ultimate, 3GB of RAM, a 1TB HD, and lots of other goodies including a Webcam, printer, scanner, and iPhone dock. The organ pipes were placed upside-down for effect.
The Command Desk's desktop is spread across three screens. Two video cards run the video over VGA connectors. The keyboard is a rebuilt Logitech featuring original Royal glass typewriter keys and custom-made brass keys for function commands (the top row, in Roman numerals). A scanner hides beneath the keyboard.
