The Barbarian Group Just Built a 'Superdesk' That You Have to See to Believe 4,400 square feet of undulating awesomeness

The upsides and drawbacks of common work spaces have been debated in the agency world for decades. But no one can deny the cool factor of The Barbarian Group's newly designed offices—and the amazing, undulating "superdesk" that snakes through it.

Benjamin Palmer and Sophie Kelly introduce the new space in the video below. Understandably, they talk mostly about the desk. A marvel of design—created with help from architect Clive Wilkinson—it features gorgeous lines, archways and cubbies, and is topped with a single unbroken surface created by a continuous pour of resin.

The thing is unreal, and of course the perfect metaphor for a place that wants to broadcast a collaborative spirit. TBG proudly calls it "a desk that we could all share, literally—4,400 square feet of undulating, unbroken awesomeness to keep people and ideas flowing."

Check out the video below. And try not to feel too bad about your own pathetic workspace.
