Its very important to have a clean desk which brings you constant inspiration any time during the day. I have to admit that I am a Mac fan myself but this isnt a post about mac lovers but more likely about people who work mostly from home or either they have their own offices. Within this article you will find a few handpicked modern mac workspaces that we’ve liked because they have something extra to offer.
A company called Twisted Image finally started production in February. Their job was to fabricate permanent hot air balloons strong enough to carry the weight of the desk. A new type of rubber composite was used to make balloons that were genuinely air-tight and would never degrade, and Caltech were called upon to supply a Heluim/Hydrogen hybrid gas with an atomic weight 150 times lighter than Helium alone.
Remi Zaugg Studio
The resulting studio functions equally as the artist’s place of work and as a place to present and view art, i.e. a small museum. As an exhibition space, the studio was a kind of prototype for the planning of the Tate Gallery of Modern Art, having given us the first opportunity to try out the concept of overhead lighting, projected for the museum in London. This overhead lighting is so simple that one wonders why it hasn’t been used in museum architecture before. Is it too simple, too primitive or not distinctive enough to bring out the individuality of the designing architect? Actually, the opposite is true. Thanks to its almost spectacular simplicity, the exhibition space acquires a peacefulness and concentration to which we are hardly accustomed in conventional museum spaces with their all-glass ceilings, suspended overhead lighting or ceiling grids. Designed by Herzog & De Meuron.
Minimal and Simple
This desk is located right under the window which is great if you like working under the sun, it gives this warmth feeling and helps anyone a bit to be more inspired and creative.
White Rustic Workspace
This spacious 109 square meters apartment from dreams has separate room for each kid and parents. Interior decor is a lovely mixture of natural wood parquet and white furniture with simple lines, with a touch of mid century pieces and designer chairs. The architect behind this home really understood the importance of natural light. The apartment is bathed in light thanks to the numerous large windows. Working fireplace & double doors give old charm to the whole place.
“I work out of a home office in the Texas Hill Country. It’s got a nice view, and the only point of access is an external door, which helps keep my work environment separate from the rest of the house. My setup is pretty straightforward – my main machine is a 27” iMac. I’ve got a 13” MacBook Air I use around the house and when traveling. That’s supplemented with an ever-evolving collection of devices (tablets, phones, etc) for testing.”
A very architecturally interesting office, designed and used by LYCS Architecture. It’s another nice example of how effective, in my opinion, the combination of modernity and old fashioned functionalism can be. The article on Arch Daily is well worth a read.
