    California-based designer Jennifer Cohen explains that "there is a need for the U.S. furniture industry to catch up with today's ubiquitous use of interactive devices. Computer desks are the current solution, but they are basically storage units for a PC tower and monitor. However they do not address needs like a group of kids playing a video game together, or viewing media on a tablet computer."

    BKNYdesign's owner and principal designer Paula Anne Patterson says this idea started as a birthday gift for her boyfriend. After she made her first one for him, she initiated a Kickstarter campaign and raised close to $6000 to start her workshop for further production. Her favorite app is Clockstagram, which draws photos of the time through the popular social media app Instagram.
