This wall-mounted Revolver desk is by Portugal-based Teixeira Design Studio.
It offers a novel way to provide a bit more surface area when needed:
Novelty aside, with no handles, I think operating the rotating sections might require a bit of futzing. You'd have to push a section on one edge, then pull from another edge to draw it out—it would drive me nuts in no time. However, this isn't in production yet (the listing on TDS' website says "available soon") so it's possible the design might receive further refinement.
It is an interesting problem. If you were the designer, what modification would you add so that a section could be smoothly manipulated in one go, without requiring push + pull? I'm assuming knobs would spoil the intended aesthetic. A hole drilled through the drawer face (if aesthetically acceptable) would solve it for the drawer, but wouldn't work for the remaining sections. Any ideas?
