Cant Desk
by Blu Dot

At A Glance:
The Cant Desk is one of only a handful of recently produced desks that combine affordability with a design that's proportionately and stylistically suited for the modern home office. Well-made and cantilevered, the Cant Desk measures just 3'6" wide, which help it to fit into the space you've got available for your office. Walnut and powder-coated steel.

What's To Like:
Economy of space and a strong frame give the Cant Desk a stable base and minimal footprint. We love how the top shelf organically happens as an extension of the legs, making it seem more integral even than the desktop. Well-organized from concept to reality.

What's Not to Like:
If you need a spacious desktop, the Cant Desk probably isn't your cup of tea. Check out the Desk 51 for a larger option.

The Bottom Line:
Especially effective in limited space, the Blu Dot Cant Desk is a great new look for an often neglected area of your home. With its upper shelf and cantilevered desktop, this small modern desk is an especially good option for apartment dwellers.

Stunning, very high quality

Comments about Blu Dot Cant Desk:

This desk looks amazing in person - much nicer than I expected. The top is a lacquer-finish metal with perforations. Really easy to assemble - only 4 parts and a bunch of screws with an allen wrench. Took me 10-15 minutes to put it together

  • Q:

    Can the top surface (grated, colored white or red, not the writing surface) hold enough weight for two 23" or 24" monitors to be placed there side by side?

    Based on the average monitor weights this would likely weigh about 16 pounds on that top surface in total

      Blu Dot does not weight rate the Cant Desk or any of their pieces, but they are safe for standard residential usage. Just to be safe, you should double check all the shelf screws for tightness. If the monitors are placed directly in the center, you might see a little flex/deflection, but it won't collapse the entire desk. Moving them towards the edge will help decrease the flex. Additionally, anchoring the monitors to a wall should help if safety is a concern.

      Yes, the Cant Desk must be assembled after delivery. It is quite simple with 2 u-shaped legs that must be attached on either side of the top shelf and writing surface with screws, and assembly instructions are included in the the shipping box.
