Weird Furniture: Globus

Although I've been feeling globe shapes lately, I must say the Michiel van der Kley Globus ($8,775) is one big piece of weird furniture. It is described as a "compact personal mobile workstation," but is basically a desk and and chair on wheels in a big white ball. Its rotating chair and pull-out table top are revealed when you crack open its globe shape, and you can close it up and roll it away if you want to work in another room. Honestly, I think a laptop is a much more versatile "workstation," and they don't look like something out of Barbarella or Google Zurich. What do you think? I generally don't think of myself as much of a traditionalist, but I guess I'm making an exception for the Globus.

I don't like it. It doesn't look that comfortable to me.

I think they're cool too. Not sure I'd ever actually put one in my home I do think they are an improvement over the putty grey cubicles in so many corproate offices today. now that I think about it I might actually have one in my home - if I had the need for one...

aww Casa, i think it's kinda cool! i'd never put it in my house, but i've always kinda lusted after those kinds of chairs. and having it actually close up into a globe is super different & neat.
