With an increased number of employees working from home in spaces they may not have anticipated being their new office, what’s a person to do to ensure some privacy so they can focus and get their work done uninterrupted?
You know what your beach-themed office is missing? A surfboard desk with a shark bite out of it. Well, don’t worry, because Lunar Lounge Design on Etsy has you covered with this $950 handmade shark bite surfboard desk.
Do you know what makes everything better? Googly eyes, that’s what. Simply slap some of these puppies onto any item, and it gives them instant personality. While you could just buy a bunch of sticky googly eyes and start gluing them to things, I think these push pins are a better idea.
If you have ever worked in a large, open office you know how hard it can be to concentrate. You have probably also thought that management treated the lot of you like livestock. Now Panasonic’s design house Future Life Factory has confirmed that office drones are nothing but livestock with horse blinders for people.
Gear maker Keep Pursuing has announced their latest creation, the OrbitPen. This pen is designed to be the ultimate desktop accessory for fidgeters, so if you are the fidgety type, this will give your hands something to do while at work.
Julius Caesar was kind of a dick. So much so that all his friends ganged up and stabbed the life out of him. Even his best pal Brutus. Sometimes you gots to cut a brother. If you want to impress your Lit or English teacher or just want something geeky and cool for your desk at the office, this pen and pencil holder will hold your writing implements assassination style.
I think we can all agree that it often takes Superman-like strength and reserve to put up with the yahoos that work in your office. I think pretty much all offices are the same. You have the slacker, the mean bitch/bastard, the weird dude/dudette, and the one guy/gal that does all the work.
If you were to buy a vintage Leica M3 rangefinder camera, you could expect to pay at least $600 (USD) on eBay for a decent one. They aren’t cheap. But if all you want is to display it on a shelf as room decor, you don’t have to pay that much.
Over the course of my career, I’ve worked in a number of different office environments, from stodgy blue suit organizations, to hip startups. Now I work for myself, out of my own home office. But over the years, I’ve come to find a number of things that I think can encourage office productivity and workplace satisfaction.
The one thing that sucks about having a desk job is that you don’t get to move around as much as other people. This can lead to a loss of muscle and having a spare tire around your mid-section, as well as other things.
I spend the majority of my work time sitting in front of the screen of my computer. And while I try to stand up from time to time, the reality is that most of us still spend quite a bit of time sitting while working.
Three years ago, we checked out the Locus, an expensive standing desk with a stool. Wayne Yeager’s LeanChair is another alternative to standing desks. Instead of letting you rest on your butt, it has a backrest and a footrest, allowing you to lean back while standing.
One of my favorite characters on The Walking Dead is Michonne. I like her because she uses a sword to slice and dice zombies rather than a gun. If you are besieged with a bunch of slow zombies, I think a sharp Katana sword might be the best way to kill a hoard.
Last October, we talked about WriteBoard, a concept for a touchscreen display that can stream its screen to mobile devices. Its fundraiser is a complete flop, but if you were hoping for such a device check out Smart Kapp.
If you have a job where you need business cards sitting out on your desk at all times, you might have a lame and boring cardholder. It probably came from Walmart or Office Depot. You could have stolen it from your pal in the cubicle next door, but we won’t judge.
