Last week I did a post about my Minimal Desk Experiment.
It was an overview of how I transformed my multi-monitor, mega-desk into a sleek, minimal setup using only a 13 in Macbook Air. If you haven’t seen it yet be sure to check it out.
I just saw that my new setup has been featured on MinimalDesks.com. I’ve been a fan of the site for a year or two now. So when I was taking pictures of the desk for my blog post I thought it’d be worth it to submit it to MinimalDesks and see what happened.
If you’ve never heard of MinimalDesks.com, it’s a listing of beautifully minimal, yet functional desks and work spaces from offices and homes all over the world. To my knowledge it’s the biggest / most popular site in the minimal desk niche.
From the minimaldesks.com about page:
For years and years I have been fascinated with desks and workspaces. As a child I watched my grandmother sit at her desk to get her serious business done. She may have done her thinking, dreaming or conceiving in other places, but her desk is where she acted on these thoughts.
As an adult I seemed to adopt the same philosophy as my grandmother, and as a result, it is where I developed my affinity for minimal and simple desks or workspaces. The Internet is a fascinating creation and it enables you to find people just like you, and vice-versa. I soon realized that for lots of people, much like myself, a desk is the place where people execute their ideas, learn, manage their families, earn their living, plan their vacations, and so on. For most, a desk becomes the cockpit for ones entire life.
I created this site to curate some of the best desks and workspaces from around the Internet as well as inject it with my own commentary, ideas and philosophies. Minimaldesks.com is designed to inspire and aid you in your quest to create a desk or workspace environment that allows you to get your best and most important work done.
This is one of my favorite minimal desks from their website. The dishes and teapot mixed with the clock font and iMac give great contrast. It’s kind of home-y / futuristic. Really cool.
Big thanks to MinimalDesks.com for listing my new desk setup.
