Barbarian Superdesk

I love this office structure developed for the Barbarian Group and the use of plywood to create nooks and curves.  There's a great little place to curl up at 1:17.

I also like that they've mixed the seating in these spaces from low desks, high desks with stools as well as comfortable couches/benches.   This variety also lends itself very well to accessibility given the various options for seating.

There does seem to be some missed opportunity for using the structure for recessing lighting as well as shelf space.  As they walk through the video there is only one place that the supports are placed in a way that they're horizontal to the floor (and are actually used as shelving).  

I would be very curious to see the video of how the desk was poured continuously.  It's an amazing feat in itself.
