Secretlab has just revealed the Magnus desk, a brand new product built from the ground up to compliment their stellar lineup of chairs.
The Magnus desk has been designed with Cable management and their magnetic ecosystem in mind. Starting with the desk being entirely made of metal, this allows the top to be sturdy yet thin compared to the average IKEA desk you will see featured in most setups. This is also the keystone of the magnetic ecosystem, Secretlab has made a few accessories with more coming soon.
The ones we have seen so far include cable anchors that magnetize to the top of the desk, routing and keeping your cables from moving around and falling on the floor when not in use. Cable sheaths also magnetize to the legs so that you can run cables down them and keep everything hidden and tidy, there is also an RGB strip that can attach anywhere magnetically and lastly a headset hook that is made to attach to the bottom of the desk for easy headset storage.
Even the mouse mat that covers the entirety of the usable surface of the Magnus has been made with a magnetic underside so that once it’s on and in place it will not be moving.
The real MVP of the Magnus, though, is the integrated cable tray. At the back of the desk, there is a groove that has a flip-up panel. This panel has some special hinges fitted so that the desk can be flush against your wall and still allow the panel to flip up. Built right into the desk so that you won’t be needing to struggle for a clean aesthetic, it even has a pop-off section in the tray so that you can fit a monitor arm.
Looks-wise the Magnus is stunning, with Secretlab’s iconic clean and modern style with just a little edge mixed in.
The groove I mentioned earlier is the real eye puller; It has been made so that you can fit the magnetic RGB strip on the side of it and illuminate the slanted edge of the groove that has the Magnus text logo.
The light is said to also bleed an aura or light behind the desk for even more added style.
The Magnus desk in my opinion is set to be a dream feature for most gamers’ ideal setup, and I for one can not wait for the day I get to get up close and personal with one.
