Bruno Morency, Montreal, submitted his combination standing and seating desk to Ikea Hackers. It is a two Gerton table tops with two Expedit’s set as an L. In the U.K., the cost of the materials will set you back about £300.
This desk is not the most attractive we’ve ever seen but it has the attractive qualities of being relatively cheap, large and allowing the easy shift from standing to sitting and back very easily. It also has the potential for a lot of storage space in the 12 Expedit spaces.
The Ikea parts it uses are :
- 1 x Gerton table 501.067.73 £70 but substitutable for a cheaper version
- 1 x Gerton table 901.067.71 £60 but substitutable for a cheaper version
- 3 x Vika Byske Legs 846.090.85 £25 x3
- 1 x 4×2 Expedit 101.030.88 £65
- 1 x 2×2 Expedit 601.352.99 £35
- 1 x Capita legs set £11
That is a total of £316 which could be reduced by around £50 by using cheaper desk tops.
