Ok... Gotta love this one. I've actually recently pondered how I could install a fridge in my office at work. Hide it under my seat! Duh! Dictating machine... check! Switches and dials... check! Crazy-ass Star Trek inspired console desk that can hover at 300 feet... check! Stylish "admin" who can route calls, sort paper and hover as well! Check!!!
There are curtains in this office! Curtains and curved glass I tell you!!! With Brass accents!?!?!
I do love the inter-office television screen "after thought" at the top of the desk.
From the February 5, 1961 Chicago Tribune:
Advanced styling and electronic automation forecast new miracles in office procedures.
The industrial design concept of an office of tomorrow focuses on a round desk which, when opened, will give its owner far more space and convenience than is possible today. Folded shut, the unit encloses a matching chair.
Interoffice television screens will provide immediate face-to-face links with other business command posts. Rotary files will be keyed electronically for rapid reference. The switchboard — as you see at the left — will employ miniaturized connections to handle many more extension lines in less space than are provided by today's already-advanced centrals.
