Initially, the available source information for this piece of functional art furniture that was written in German did not translate automatically, and Google Translate was not much help. However, H Georg Thieme has contacted us today (27-12-2023) via the comments section below to tell us he has updated his shop listing to include an English translation as follows:

Steampunk desk made from a harmonium.
This is the creative conversion of a fully mechanical harmonium transfer into a contemporary computer desk.
With integrated sound system, printer and USB. The Registers are partially electrified and prepared to turn on computers, lights and other things.
Each of my desks is custom-made and can be further modified as desired.
As you can see from the photo, the harmonium computer desk is a pretty cool-looking creation.
What is a harmonium?
A harmonium is a keyboard instrument that produces sound by blowing air through metal reeds. It is similar in appearance to a small organ and is often used in Indian classical music and in some Christian, Jewish, and Islamic worship services. The harmonium is played by pumping a foot pedal or using bellows to force air through the instrument while the player presses the keys to produce different notes. The instrument has a distinctive sound, often described as warm, rich, and full-bodied, making it a popular choice for musicians who want to add a unique touch to their compositions.
