A few days ago, my adjustable-height “Autonomous Desk (basic)” arrived (earlier blog post), and I like it.
But even before it arrived, I knew I would need to address some “cable management” issues.
The issue is that the desk’s movement (up and down) creates a range of motion that any cables must also allow for. I was especially worried that at some point, I’d lower the desk and somehow a cable would get caught, so that when the desk was raised again, the cable would be pulled tight (taut) and might end up either unplugging or pulling something down from the desk (or up from the floor).
My first goal was to reduce the number of cables from the desk to the floor; ideally, there would be just one, a single 120V power cord, with ample slack.
