How Do You Relate To Your Desk?

Filmmaker Aaron Trinder visited the desks of a handful of creative workers to get a look at their workspaces and discuss how they relate to that space. The result is this excellent six-minute video.

The piece examines the value workers place on their desks, discusses Einstein's "famously messy" desk, and considers how our relationship with our workspace varies based on what we want from our desk. Not only does the video offer some great workspace inspiration, but it's also an interesting look at the somewhat intimate relationship we have with our workspace. (Like Mark Frauenfelder said over at Boing Boing, I just wish it had been longer.)

    I wish I had room for a massive square desk.

    I love the quote at the end...

    "Probably what will happen in the future is that the desk becomes more a state of mind than an actual physical place."

    I can already relate to that. My laptop is my "Desk" - it is how I have it set up, with everything ready where I need it. I can take it with me, and as soon as I'm in the laptop's environment, it doesn't matter where I am physically, I am at my "desk".
