Nothing will seem like work when toiling away at the Senescent Desk. The mini, lush garden that is built-in on the back portion of the table top creates a serene ambiance that would calm even the most stressed-out person. It might not be a zen garden, but it might as well be.

Created by Gothenburg, Sweden-based designer Love Hulten, the Senescent Desk is a self-sufficient gardening system that features a water-tank, mist makers, two fans, digital clock and, most importantly, a growth substrate material made from recycled plastic. The Senescent Desk requires no human interaction in order to flourish.

The truly interesting aspect about the Senescent Desk, however, is how it is designed to change over time. Hulten uses untreated wood so that it would react more strongly to its environment.
