AUGHHGHGHG WANT THAT.
Now that's industrial design.
Psychologically, the guest in an the office is already at a disadvantage. Meeting something like this can't help.
if you like this I suspect that "guests" in your office are usually clamped into a restraining chair with built in trapdoor and chute to the shark tank.
I thought you hated steampunk (which means anything rusty - right?)
How about something lighter?
industrial predates steampunk. we had rivets first.
Very true - but as soon as the rivets rust... it's steampunk.
I don't see any gears or brass hotglued on, therefore it is not steampunk.
Yes, although my friends who like Victorian cosplay... sorry Steampunk keep telling me that there's more to it than "glue some cogs and shit on stuff".
I remain less than convinced.
Also NiN style "industrial" and Gibsonesque cyberpunk is cooler. Rusty metal and Bladerunner beat pocket watches and top hats any day.
