Victorian Steampunk Desk
This is the 'Victorian Organ Command Desk'. It's made from bits and pieces of Victorian detritus that Bruce had collected including the carcass of a 19th century pump organ. It took 6 months to build using four different crafts persons to design the desk, restore and modify the antiques, and later install the computer systems. Included in this all-in-one workstation desk are fully integrated electronics including 3 monitors, computer, printer, scanner and webcam. The horn speakers on either side are installed in cast iron stanchions and modified with modern acoustic suspension drivers.

The Sit-to-Walkstation ($4,899) is an adjustable desk with a treadmill mounted to its base. With the push of a few buttons, the user can go from standing there crunching numbers to burning off a few calories while doing the same. A monitor mounted to the desk shows the treadmill's speed (.3 mph to 2 mph), how many calories have been burned, and the duration and distance of the walk. According to Steelcase, the treadmill is so quiet it will not disturb your neighboring co-workers. However, we imagine the slap of our feet and our heavy breathing would be enough to drive them insane.
