Computer and keyboard carved into wooden table

Designer Marlies Romberg rebels against the world of plastic and aluminum with her final project at the Utrecht School of the Arts. Dear Diary 1.0 is a wooden table with the keyboard laser cut into it, a computer tucked neatly underneath, and a flat panel built into a wooden structure. The whole thing is just downright clever.

It's not clear whether this is a working model, but we do know it's made with wood and brass. One thing's for sure, the artist makes a good case for precision craftsmanship with her exquisite woodwork, a delightful counterpoint to today's increasingly plastic world.

Take a look at a two more pics after the jump, one showing more table details, and a tight shot of that laser-carved wooden keyboard:
