One Less Desk

My new friend Adam alerted me that the fine folks over at Hecker Design are now taking pre-orders for their one less desk which will ship in March.

The idea behind One Less Desk is that CRT’s are being traded up for flat screen monitors and one can now survive with much less desk surface area than before.

What about all your paperwork, you ask? I’ve been following the 37 Signals’ David Heinemeier’s suggestion to scan all my papers and bills to PDF and then shred them–that way I’ve got everything I could possibly need at my fingertips even if I’m at home, the office or out of town.

Flare Table

I’m still getting used to the price of this table, and the idea of being able to switch out the pattern of the legs.

“An amazingly versatile piece by Marcel Wanders, capable of matching any room imaginable! Its secret is in its thick, conical legs, made of clear, standard injection-moulded polycarbonate. Change the look of the design by simply inserting a pattern of your choice! Two sets of graphic inserts are available, designed by Marcel Wanders or Javier Mariscal… or choose the blank sheets of art paper and add your own personal touch to the design!”
