The trend in desk design has been to remove drawers, leaving us with featureless slabs. As people's desks grow more cluttered, the pendulum swings the other way and companies like Zenlet start designing desk-mounted accessories to hold all our crap. Another company in this category is a startup called Practiko, who's pitching their Otis Rack on Kickstarter. They reckon most drawers are too large, and figure it's better to go with multiple smaller drawers that have adjustable dividers within them.
I understand the thinking behind it, but this seems like one out of multiple concept mock-ups you go through to get to the finished design, rather than this being the finished design itself.
I think I'd constantly be knocking that tower over by accident. The hanging drawers make a little more sense, but something about the execution seems janky, like the proportions are not right.
What say you? Am I just holding a prejudiced notion of drawers, are these more in line with modern-day needs? (And yes, the project has been successfully backed.)
