I ran across this on a list of top desks for 2021.
My first thought was “Dancing banana animated GIF meme.”. I haven’t looked up the designer nor their inspiration. But to be honest, it doesn’t matter. He/she could tell me it came from their muse. What matters… happenstance or deliberate, it’s an inanimate object that mimics an Internet meme that mimics a piece of fruit that mimics a dancing human being. Is it high art just by the number of shoulders it’s standing on? Or just a good example of “All creative work is derivative”? Can I call it anthropomorphic? Why not?
We stand on the shoulders of giants. Or on the shoulders of dancing bananas.
Not my style of desk, but bravo! Whimsical yet functional.
