While open-plan offices have been the bane of many, it's close relative, hot-desking has added to the dehumanising of workspaces all over the world. Not only do you lack any privacy at work and have to put up with the various sounds and odours of your co-workers, but now you can't even set up a space that offsets those hassles with some personal comforts.
