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.

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.
