i guess the ikea jerker desktop really does inspire hacks. ellen, proud owner of a jerker desktop, sent me her hack on the effektiv file cabinet, which accompanied her desktop.
she writes, “i wanted a file cabinet that was the same height as my jerker desktop rather than one that hid under the desk.”
so she shod it in 8-inch capita pumps. then, not happy with the “officey” looks of the standard effektiv file cabinet handles, ellen replaced them with bitnik. a small change but i think they made quite a difference.
