Even though I’m an outspoken advocate for remote work, people also seem to be curious about what my setup at home looks like. With the current COVID-19 crisis, it is more relevant than ever to create a comfortable and productive work environment in your own four walls.
So here is my very own workspace for your inspiration. If you spot something you like that is not mentioned below, reach out on twitter or via email!
I spend a significant amount of time in my office, so it was necessary to build a space that makes me feel productive and creative. It is also strictly dedicated to getting work done. Having a separate room makes it easy to close the door when I’m on a video call with the appointmed team or a client.
The office is designed to fit my personal style as well. I like to surround myself with lots of natural light, green plants, and inspirational/funny quotes on the wall. Right in front of my desk is a large painting of ocean waves breaking in a bay — perfect for peeking over the screen and daydreaming for a minute.
The desk itself is custom made and height-adjustable, which allows me to either work sitting or standing — all it takes is a simple press of a button underneath the tabletop.
As a designer, there was no way around Apple in my early days and I’ve been sticking to their devices for ages now. I do want to give other products a try someday though (👋 Microsoft).
My current setup includes
- Late 2016 15.4” MacBook Pro
- Apple Magic Keyboard
- Apple Magic Trackpad
- LG UltraFine 5k Display
- iPhone 11 Pro
- iPad Pro 11" with the Magic Keyboard
- Creative 2.1 Speaker System
I don’t even know the exact model. I’ve been using those speakers since I was 14, and they still sound amazing. They also came with a fantastic subwoofer.
- When I’m not standing, I’m using the Aeris 3Dee Active Office Chair
- The LG display and MacBook sit on a 2-in-1 Monitor Arm from Amazon
I love the floating display look, and it also frees up a ton of space on the desk
- Bose QC35 Noise-Cancelling Headphones
- Phone stand from Lamicall
- Evolve Bamboo Gen2 electric skateboard for getting around the city
