It’s simply a collection of pieces showcasing the computer desktops and physical desktops of designers, but I find this voyeurism very telling about how we work and our general approach to life. Do we embrace chaos or order? Are we focused or scattered? Are we playful or all work? What’s important to us even as we work? Do we really love tribbles?
Take my own workspace as an example. Can you tell I’m a minimalist from the start? I prefer a clean, comfortable, efficient and beautiful environment, and aside from needing some aesthetic adjustments for my realspace, I think I achieve that. In my Ubuntu-running laptop I keep things clean by having no icons on my desktop. I keep a desk that has only the items I’m always going to be using while keeping other things handy. I’m always sitting on the silver exercise ball, which helps with my posture and, along with the small weight to the left, lets me get in some exercise when I have a moment.
What is your workspace like?
