The Porsche 911 Writing Desk by 3 GJB 17 gives you one more reason and opportunity to correct those commoners who pronounce it “Porsh” by telling them it is, in fact, “Por-shuh”…

Made from original Porsche 911 body parts, coated in Arctic Silver automotive paint, and finished with Custom Made American Walnut attachments that complement the car’s contours beautifully, the 911 Writing Desk takes the iconic car’s rear end, converting its boot hood into a writing surface that doubles up as a cabinet for storing your stationery (using a spring-loaded hinge that lifts the boot lid up).

There’s no reason you’d NEED the Porsche 911 Writing Desk over any other writing desk (an IKEA or Pottery Barn one, perhaps), but its design may sure leave you lusting after it anyway. Definitely the kind of furniture to be the focal point of your workspace, the Porsche 911 Writing Desk is unusual in every way, from its unlikely inspiration and material source, to the way the boot lid turns into a desk/privacy-partition, to just the surprisingly complementary combination of metal and wood styled to work together marvelously well… and when I say unusual, I mean unusual in a good way!
