Beautiful quality piece of furniture.
I bought several of these for our office and they look fantastic. They really give a great feeling of space and light and the room seems somehow much bigger.
Of course they need normal cleaning and show finger prints etc as you would expect with glass. But I suppose all the dirt just gets hidden on a normal desk so I'm happy to work on a cleaner surface! I have a glass table at home and in the same way it can scratch in rough use but for our normal day to day computer office use we have no scratches so far (6 Months on). If you are after a smart minimalist piece of furniture as a desk then I would highly recommend staten.

Great desk - easy to scratch though
I've bought many of these desks over the years for our office. They're great in that they make a room seem so much bigger as you can see through them which gives off a feeling of space. They're solid, well made and quite easy to dismantle and store if needed.
My only negative is that they scratch quite easily. If you wear a metal watch on your wrist and type you'll find that fairly quickly this will scratch the surface of the desk. It won't impair your usage of the desk though - just small aesthetic scratching which if you're a details person like me might start to annoy you.
The only other pointer i can give is make sure yoy unwrap the desk fully before you let the delivery man go. I've ordered 7 of these over the last 4 years and two of them have shown up cracked in one way or another. It's the nature of glass - being fragile - unfortunately, the delivery guys probably do their best to get them to you in one piece but if you do find cracks then it's much simpler to have the same delivery team take it away with them for a replacement than have to schedule a collection and redelivery.
Otherwise all good. Enjoy the light airiness these desks give a room!
Hope this is helpful to would be buyers..
