Sequel Desk by BDI
designed by Matthew Weatherly

At A Glance:Ideally, a sequel takes the familiar parts of the original and re-imagines them, puts them into a new context, and fashions an equally original work. This desk does just that. The look of the desk is that of an overturned table; the plane of the desk rests on two extended legs and the other two serve as the base of the desk. Nifty. Within the desk is a hidden keyboard, and lots of other organizational goodies.

See the entire BDI Sequel Office collection.

What's To Like:
This is a clever little number. The hidden keyboard is cool, but perhaps even cooler is a hidden cord organizer, between the two panels of the "privacy screen" you can attach to the front of the desk. No more messy, disorganized cables for your phone, your iPod and your laptop! The design is pretty neat too, with the overturned table theme making the product younger, cooler, and more interesting.

What's Not to Like:
The plane of the desk isn't very deep. If you like keeping your computer screen in the center of the desk, it's going to be hard to find enough space to keep papers and other desktop objects. BDI does offer a return to offer more space. For some, a hidden keyboard isn't a plus (I'm looking at you laptop folks).

The Bottom Line:
Sequel is a cool looking desk with lots of unique functionality and a fresh aesthetic. And it's from BDI, a company with a well-deserved reputation for quality.

BDI Sequel Desk

The modern, sleek profile of the Sequel Desk is engineered for ergonomic comfort and conducive to productivity. This BDI desk features a black neoprene lining on its hidden keyboard which acts as a keyboard stabilizer and mouse pad. The rear section of this keyboard drawer is a perfect cubby for charging electrical gadgets like cell phones and MP3 players. The user's side of the desk's modesty panel acts as a cable and cord-stowing mechanism - it easily detaches from the desk when you need to plug or unplug something.

Features:

Multifunctional Desk Drawer
The Sequel Desk features a recharging area in the back of the drawer. This drawer has wire retention slots to hold the cords of your rechargeable devices in place when the device is removed. There, these normally cluttered cords and cables remain hidden until your various electronic devices need recharging.

Sequel Office Desk Drawer

Internal Power Strip Housing
No more unsightly, tangled power strip on the floor. With 4 extra-strength magnets and adhesive padding, the BDI Sequel Desk holds any power strip fast to its internal steel structure. This unique system keeps power strips out of sight, but easily within reach should you need to change your power cords at a moment's notice.

Sequel Desk Power Strip Placement

Integrated Cord Management
Simple tilt-down panels built into the desk hide all cables and cords. If the desk is placed against a wall, the Sequel's back panel can be removed to reach wall outlets.

Sequel Desk Panels

Micro-Etched Glass Surface
Textured glass top provides a clean, smooth writing surface. Tempered glass can be cleaned with a simple glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth or with a "Magic Eraser" (ask for it your local drug store).

Sequel Desk Glass Top

The Sequel Desk is 25.5" deep. The front section for the keyboard is 8" from front to back and the lip is 2" high. The back section is 7.5" from front to back and the lip is 4" high.

        Comments about BDI Sequel Desk:

        i love BDI's great looks and attention to detail. i purchased this desk with a short and tall file pedestal. the tempered glass surface is easy to clean. the modular components with casters make it easier to move than similar sized desks. keep in mind that the tall file pedestal is flush with the desk surface while the regular file pedestal fits under the desk.

        if i could change one thing about this desk, it would be to have more space for the mouse in the keyboard tray. there is certainly enough space to move the mouse around, but not enough to use an ergonomic mouse pad that supports your wrist.

        i would highly recommend this desk if you want a modern design/look/feel and need a significant amount of both storage space and surface area without the bulk associated with bigger desks.

          The desk is nearly perfect: good looking, quality build, perfect size, great feel, BUT... my mouse (a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000) does not work on the glass surface. What a shame...
