This sliver of a desk is probably the smallest fully equipped bureau out there. Flatmate, by Michael Hilgers for the German design company Magazin, in only five inches deep. Yet it can hold your laptop, desktop items and writing paraphernalia, along with some filing in the clever cabinet that opens from the sides. Grooves in the backboard can accommodate three metal shelves (included), providing for even more storage. The desk features an integrated power outlet and fluorescent lighting fixture, elegantly hidden from the view.
