“We had an old Ikea desk that wasn’t ergonomic. In fact, none of the desks at Ikea are ergonomic! So we decided to build one ourselves using Vika parts (Furusund, Byske, Fintorp) and created a nifty second tier on top by mounting two Knuff magazine files sideways. The end result is a desk with tabletop cubbies, hidden wires, a top drawer charging station, and a hot, sliding keyboard tray. And did I mention it’s ergonomic?”
