The Futuristic Nexus Technical Commandstation Facilitates Efficiency

 - Feb 20, 2013
One might expect to see the Nexus Technical Commandstation present on the set of a sci-fi movie or TV show. Its fluid forms are sharp and sleek and it looks like it must be made from a cutting-edge malleable material that can be modeled and then rendered robust.

This example of avant-garde furniture was designed by Andrew van der Merwe, incorporating a computer desk and an office chair into one. The sculptural base curves up to support the swiveling seat while a thicker branch rises and morphs into a blade-like writing surface with a projecting desk lamp overhead. It might look like a single solid piece, but the Nexus Technical Commandstation's tabletop can separate and slide sideways to reveal a convenient storage space inside.
