seriously, those legs could be re-purposed from anything, found somewhere

best get in touch with Abe central directly as its probably some employee's prod desk...rest is speculation

There are 2 sets of legs... Main desk looks like re purposed material or the like.

The wood/laminate part of the desk is quite simple to make. If you are not practical or skilled then a cabinet maker could put that together in no time if you wanted the ‘industrial’ look. Look for a second hand ‘trestle’ table. Remove legs and install on new desk top.

Looks to be approx 1600mm x 800mm. Two standard sheets of MDF or ply or demolition paneling would do the job.

notice the bad photoshop on the new box? looks like the old logo and the text were added later.

the desk is fine, the messy cables around it are off-putting.

audio to midi and session automation, yay! hundreds of dollars of yay???

Link to studio owner's post where he mentions that he built the desk himself:

From another thread:

What is the name of the artist Gerhard mentions at 3:50 - Robert Liberg??

I'd like to know more about the studio that Ableton chose to make the cover art for Live 9!
Robert Lippok !
That's who owns the desk anyway... wonder if he's a forum member?

edit: I'm talking about this desk which I think is what the OP was after!

The clean lines, the natural wood pared with steel legs. I don't know - I'm Danish, and have a liking for Scandinavian design. Maybe that's it…

I don't think it looks homemade at all. But nobody can identify the designer?
