Designer's Eye: Revive and Survive Your Office Space

Though I'm guilty of the same neglect, I have made a few attempts, including my project "Flourish", a re-imagined chandelier comprised of flourescent tubing.
Here are some other ways to bring effective design into your workspace.
Created by the great Massimo Vignelli in 1966, this exquisite calendar remains an enduring example of excellence in modern graphic design.
