Hey, when you have a new baby you have to make some major sacrifices. Less video games, maybe free up some room in the home. Stuff like that. IKEA Hacker Ian from Los Angeles had to give up his home office when a new baby was on the way.
My desk is pretty messy. I’m not ashamed to admit it, but maybe if I had a desk organizer like this one from Officeoriginair, I’d be more tidy. Its minimalist design is definitely something attractive and distinctive for any desk.
I’ve seen all kinds of office chairs and desks, but I’m pretty sure the Locus series by Focal is the first one that I’ve encountered that encourages people to be in a position halfway between standing up and sitting down.
We all need desks, but did you ever think about hacking the box in which your computer came in to make it into a desk? While I’d love to say that’s what we’ve got here, this particular desk is made entirely from corrugated cardboard, but wasn’t made from the actual cardboard box the computer shipped in.
You never have enough drawers in your desk do you? Or enough surface area for that matter. Whatever desk you have, you are stuck with using it the way it is. The bamboo PixelTable by Studio Intussen is different.
Chances are you have too many pencils and pens and no good place to put them. If you got attacked by a zombie, you could defend yourself by stabbing them into his or her head, but then he would just walk away with them, so this zombie head pencil holder is the next best option.
You might have a big screen, or a fancy desk for your PC or Mac, but I bet you don’t have a rig like this one for using your computer. The MWE Emperor 200 is about the fanciest computer workstation you can buy these days.
With all of the modern ways (apps, iPhones, and your watch) to let you know of elapsed time, it’s kind of cool to get a desk clock that does the same. Unlike other timepieces, this thing is right in your face.
If you’re like me, your old Nintendo GameCube is either gathering dust in a closet somewhere, or you’ve eBayed it by now. But there is one other thing you could do with your GameCube – turn it into a desktop organizer.
Self-declared “Superman nerd” Scott Trosclair (aka “Scottage Cheese”) built this insane version of the Fortress of Solitude for his desk at work. Unfortunately, Scott’s employer is shutting down, and his Fortress needs a new home. Why not help a brother out, and make it yours?
