New shelves allow office workers to eat at their desks with ease

POOLE, England A Korean office furniture designer has created a shelf that fits above computer keyboards to protect them from crumbs and coffee.

Kong Duck-young, a designer from office furniture manufacturer Steelcase, created the shelf as a resting place for food and drinks for office workers who opt to eat breakfast and lunch and drink coffee at their desks.

The shelves currently are sold at U.K.-based BT Office Furniture.
