Stilvoll's beautiful, versatile Crescendo C2 desk uses clever, and nearly invisible, mechanical engineering to provide access to multiple storage compartments, expand in size, adjust in height, and tilt portions of the desktop up into drafting-table angles. Comes in three heights: "School & College," "Secretary" and "Standing-Desk." This is a combination of industrial design and craftsmanship at its finest, and the walnut version is particularly eye-pleasing in person.
