From the ClassiCon site:

A good idea doesn't take up much space — just a piece of paper or a laptop. Christoph Böninger's Zelos secretary desk reflects this reduction to the essentials. With its pared-down elegance, it meets all the functional requirements of the 21st-century laptop generation. Opening or closing the "black box" marks the beginning or end of work with a small ritual act. The leather writing surface perfects the sensual pleasure of letting one's thoughts roam at this delightful workplace.

Foldout secretary desk with side compartments and a drawer. Additional storage space, cable outlet. Core leather desk pad. Body in high-gloss black or white lacquer, frame of chromium-plated steel. ::Classicon via ::Unplugged
