This is a laptop bureau is inspired by laid bare old world mechanical technology reminiscent of late 19th and early 20th Century farm machinery often
found rusting in the veld on a typical Highveld farm.
The bureau is designed to open and close using a system of gears, cranks and rack and pinions.
As one turns the handle the top lifts up and a rack and pinion pushes the timber worktop out towards you, giving you extra work space.
The purpose of the bureau is to give the user a designated place to work on a laptop. When the user is done working, the lid closes and protects/hides the laptop.
