Designer's Eye: Revive and Survive Your Office Space

Joe Doucet finds workplace accessories with savvy.


You spend one-third of your life in bed. If you're anything like me, you spend the other two thirds at work. And yet, despite the much-heralded advent of the office-as-playground and the widespread tearing down of cubicle walls, surprisingly few designers have turned their attention to the spaces where we labor. 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.
