Gadget shop Hammacher and Schlemmer always tries to find unique and expensive gadgets for their catalog releases. For their new Spring catalog they selected the $7,000 Globus Scriptorium as the cover gadget.
Globus Scriptorium is a desk and chair ensconced inside a pod, providing flexible yet unobtrusive working space.
By Dutch innovator Michiel van der Kley, who took his inspiration from examining the eclectic designs conceptualized by 1930s futurists, the 2 1/2' diameter pod is comprised of two durable polyurethane hemispheres that, when opened with its built-in handle, forms a seat and a workspace.
The foam-molded seat swivels 180°, and is padded and luxuriously upholstered in leather, placing users 1 1/2' from the base for comfortable, relaxed reclining while working. The workstation's sturdy volkern plastic desktop unfolds and extends from the front hemisphere, supported by a hidden steel bracket; small items may be stored underneath the work surface.
