    I see the MILK desk is finally available to buy; didn't think it would ever go on sale. Pity it's five grand. :eek:

    Probably won't be able to use a chair with wheels because of the base

    Five grand!? That's a ripoff. I could build you one for four.

    Any takers? :p

    Looks like there isn't much room between the wheel and base. Good knee knocker for taller peeps

    Too fussy in appearance to be considered "perfect", IMHO.

    Practically speaking, is it stable? Can you put your weight on a corner? Does it tip? Can you grab the edge of the desk and pull your chair towards it? What happens when someone bumps into it?

    And -get this- you have to spend $20,000 just to get four legs. Other desks have four as standard :)

    Not my cup of tea (or milk, for that matter).

    This is really cool, but I wouldn't spend the 5 grand on it. The fish tank would be the only cool thing about it. There is also a lot of wasted space. Depending on your extra accessories (which I don't think you have very much of). Banana Phone.

    i don't know, the only stress test they did involved a hungover graphic designer

    Reminds me of a James Bond movie. I think it involved a nasty metal-vaporizing laser beam pointed somewhere it really shouldn't? Or maybe it was a big spinning sawblade? Either way, it brought a tear to the eye.:eek:
