The Sense Media Cabinet provides freestanding workspace storage in cool modern style. The left side of the cabinet has a pull-out file frame that accepts letter-sized files. The right side has a shelf, making two storage surfaces to hold supplies, books — whatever you need at hand. The sliding door runs on tracking along the full width of the cabinet to cover either side. While the clean top surface can support equipment or add work area, and a wrap-around walnut side panel peeks just above the top surface to keep workspace incidentals well contained.
The Sense Media Cabinet includes a wrap-around walnut back panel that adds a furniture-quality look and white surfaces that accent the wood. An easy choice for printers, supplies, other technology tools. For display or pure utility, this piece coordinates beautifully with the Desk in either finish option.
A simple and intuitive design. "We wanted to design a desk that is future-proof. It starts simple, but by adding the optional desktop storage or media cabinet, it can grow to be more adaptable to your space and work style. And with easy, tool-free assembly, there are no parts to lose as you move from place to place and through different stages of life." — Daniel Korb of design firm Korb + Korb.

Expensive, but I nice, unique, niche item.

I purchased the Media Cabinet for the uniquely curved walnut veneered construction for use as the stand for my PC tower next to my desk. Of course, one issue as that much of the sexiness is lost if the cabinet is up against the wall and you only get the walnut exposed on the sides and through the back of the inside. The construction of the unit is good. The only Ikea component on it is the optional thin, metal shelf, but I'll probably be making a walnut replacement shelf for it anyways, should I even use one. The rest of the white components of the unit are relatively solid (probably MDF), and the walnut veneered (layered particle/mdf) looks very nice (three matching/copied sheets of veneer pasted seamlessly on top each other). One last issue is that it is pretty short, and in general, suffers from a dwarf complex next to your average furniture. It's the kind of furniture best suited for holding a Bonsai tree next to a platform bed.
Designer: Korb + Korb
"The age of Leonardo da Vinci is gone," notes designer Daniel Korb, "but still I believe a holistic view to the world is needed." Baden, Switzerland, is the vantage point for Korb's perspective. It's where he was born and the place where he and his wife Susan operate Korb + Korb, which they founded in 1989.
Like many leading designers of modern office furniture, Korb started as an architect. Since then, his design expertise has broadened and his inspiration refined. Today, his creativity finds expression in architecture, communication, and design. The intersection of these disciplines results in innovative ideas and, ultimately, smarter end products.Korb + Korb is synonymous with simple and intuitive design.
