City dwellers who are lucky enough to have a balcony (or maybe just a fire escape) and who also work at home now have the perfect setup for the warmer months. German designer Michael Hilgers created a brilliant balcony desk that hooks onto the railing to hold a laptop or papers. Dubbed BalKonzept, this extremely lightweight design comes complete with an integrated flowerbox, so you can have both a perfect outdoor workstation and a garden.

Selling at Rephormhaus, a German design company that specializes in space-saving furniture, this legless makeshift design takes up hardly any room. Made from solid recyclable polyethylene plastic, it measures 23.6 inches x 21.2 inches x 13.7 inches. The height will depend on the height of your balcony minus eight inches.

It comes in a wide variety of colors, adding a bright spark to your new outdoor office. Weatherproof and versatile, it can also be used as a shelf or small table to hold a book or serve as the perfect bed for your four-legged friend. And when the sun sets, BalKonzept can hold some drinks; fill the cavity with ice cubes, and you’ve got a balcony party.

    Cool….but the only problem with the Fire Escape part is that according to New York City fire rule regulations, its illegal to have anything (let alone humans) hanging out on the fire escapes. Balconies, different story obviously, but this balcony desk would be a no-no in NYC.
