The Home Office Sandbox

If you've ever spent a day at your desk wishing you could put your feet in the sand and listen to the roar of the ocean, this unconventional home office is for you.

Justin Kemp, an artist's assistant from Massachusetts, was inspired by the Beach Boys to set up a sandbox for his workspace. He boxed off a space with simple lumber, lined with with plastic sheeting, and filled with with sand. In went his desk, chair, computer, and his feet into the sand.

It's unconventional, there's a high chance of finding sand all over your house, and people will probably look at your office rather oddly; none the less Justin decided to go with an idea that most people would just talk about and the results are pretty neat. Check out the link below to read more about his setup at Setups and Spaces.

    Then stand up and walk around and get sand all over the floor >< or your dog decides to dig it up everywhere you drop a screw in it, you drop that new processor you just bought, this sounds like a disaster waiting to happen :S

    but very cool nonetheless

    This idea would have awesome potential, only how to fix the trouble of getting sand everywhere?

    Don't do this if you have a cat, unless you want to provide it with a large toilet.

    Is it just me, or is the fact that this is an Apple user, completely unsuprising?

      This is a creative idea - notable in apple products. And not the most logical - notable in overpriced sexy shaped objects. It's the creative circle.

    I would hate that.
    It would be like a never-ending struggle to get sand out of everything. I'd feel dirty and it doesnt even look like any fun. sorry. thumbs down!

    With all that light, he could have done a box of turf ... Also nice on the feet, and less likely to go all through the house.

    Or pebbles ...

      I liked the sand idea until I read this comment.
      You're right, grass would be lovely and I can imagine pebbles feeling fantastic underfoot.

    Have you tried to roll your chair in sand?
