Applied Pressure Desk

So here is a really different idea for a desk. The video above shows a desk that focuses on applied pressure and user interaction. Each drawer requires a different amount of pressure to close and forces the user to be aware of their own actions. If you apply to much pressure to a drawer, air is sent through a compartment in the desk which pushes another drawer open. Pretty cool idea and the craftsmanship on the desk is really nice as well.

    This desk is really cool but, as a craftsman, my question is does it work with weight in the drawers? Even if not, it is still really cool.

    • That’s a good question. I would imagine that as long as there is not anything really heavy (just normal office supplies and such) in the drawers it would produce the same effect. I’ll try and find out more and post an update.
