I have a piano, a workplace and a lot of stuff for my business. Of course, all this takes up space. Now that I have a child and the top floor has now become a playground, I thought that the piano should make room for a desk. However, a shallow desk makes it difficult to sit and a desk that is too deep takes up a lot of space.

Here came the plan:
- A desk based on IKEA BESTA blocks
- Piano must fit in
- Desk part must be foldable to create a mini room
- Where possible, there must be as much storage space in the desk as possible.
- If possible, room for robot vacuum cleaner, printer, 2 laptops and screens.
- All cables concealed

The whole is 1.8 meters wide and 1.8 meters high. When unfolded it is also 1.8 meters deep, but closed it is a maximum of 40.0 cm and only the piano protrudes 52.0 cm.

Work description: how did you realize your project

- The base consists of 2 IKEA Besta blocks of 60.0 cm
- Here is a 40.0 x 180.0 cm desktop. This desktop supports both the piano and a modified Besta cabinet (these cabinets are effectively made of cardboard both above and below, so the bottom and roof have been replaced by an plate.
- On this is a turntable from Probeslag: Turntable round large Article number: DIS993 this can carry 200KG
- The desktop protrudes over the piano to a panel with wheels underneath. These carry 50kg each (4 wheels) so I have a total of about 400KG to distribute (not that it will be that heavy)
- On top of it The desktop has a display carrier and 6 narrow (20.0 cm deep cabinets) behind which the desk is located.

Final size: What are the external dimensions?

180.0 × 180.0 × 40.0 (52 with piano)
