This week’s Workspace of the Week is Filemakerdude’s minimalist office:
Not everyone loves minimalist workspaces, but I have found that austere decor can be quite inspiring and helpful when thinking about my office space. I love how deliberate the decision was for all of the artwork in the space, nothing was put up without great consideration. (Am I as deliberate with what I hang on my walls?) The furniture all has high function. (Is my office furniture meeting my needs?) The cable containment is exquisite. (Would reducing the cable clutter help me to better focus on my work?) The lighting helps to warm the room in a space that might otherwise feel cold. (Does the lighting improve the comfort level in my room?) The clutter-free desk provides Filemakerdude with the ability to quickly transform the computer station into a multipurpose work table. (If I got rid of some of the things on my desk — the pen cup, the inbox — would I get better functionality out of it?) Thank you, Filemakerdude, for your impressive submission to our Flickr group.
Want to have your own workspace featured in Workspace of the Week? Submit a picture to the Unclutterer flickr pool. Check it out because we have a nice little community brewing there. Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.
