Designing an office workstation in clean design and FAKTUM ABSTRAKT gloss white lacquer.

Taking the appearance of a buffet lounge, the Box Office work station integrates easily into space and allows a solution of aesthetic and functional storage space for computer equipment.

Its dimensions can accommodate any professional computing environment (central unit, A3 Multifunction Printer, 2 to 3 LCD screens, laptop storage, CDs, records, papers etc. ..) to work in optimal conditions.

It can be used in the office or at home for its multitude of storage and its intuitive ergonomics to organize everyday accessories. A slight pressure is sufficient to open the doors and drawers. The cable passes are provided at the rear of the cabinet to let the electrical cables of different devices. By its minimalist design and an elegant box, the BOX OFFICE workstation can hide the workspace when it is closed.

    Has anyone figured out what pieces to buy to make this? I know it has Faktum, Bastrakt, and Rationell but what pieces within that product line?

    Almost 3 years since I have seen this workstation and I still want to adapt it (but my wife is still not convinced…).
    Now with new Metod kitchen closets and the new frames, I think it’s even easier to build it (100cm wide et 37 cm deep would feet my needs).

    After 3 years of use, does the owner have any problem with the door hinges used horizontally? On The pictures, it look like you don’t to reinforce them

    Anyone alive there?
    Please, tell us how you did the upper part. Shortened 195 cm tall Faktum on its side? Or sth self-made?
    Thx in advance

    très beau travail.
    J’ai regardé votre site web mais je ne parviens pas à saisir comment vous avez réalisé la partie haute, d’un seul tenant: avez vous découpé les parties latérales de caissons faktum haut? avez vous utilisé un caisson haut à l’horizontal?

    plus généralement, je serai preneur d’informations sur les composants Ikea ou non et le montage effectué.


  10. pour la rupture des chaines pas de souci c’est des chaines qui résiste à 100kg chacune c’est plutôt les fixations sur le plateaux a faire avec soin avec des platines .On peut aussi encastrer une barre de renfort métallique
    je suis architectes je passe des heures dessus pas de soucie mais c’est fait pour une perssone

    best regard

    I love this, but question the sturdiness of the keyboard/mouse flattop. a little pressure and i’d worry about breaking it from the chains…

    This is great! But can anyone tell me what specific parts this is made out of?

    wow thanks! this is a great idea. ive been looking for a way to have an expandable table and workspace in a cramped room for my art projects and this looks perfect

    Very very nice setting that can be adapter with other kind of ikea furniture to make it narrow

    would be wise to have some ‘holes’ on the right side so that the desktop can have fresh air otherwise the computer won’t last long

    keep it up
