How is this as inspiration for making the best of a less-than-ideal situation?
Jared Nielson sent me this picture this morning and I couldn’t help but share it. He says:
In an era of socialized information technology, there is the
opportunity to re-capitalize the space and demonstrate that originality
trumps equality, that shoving capitalists into socialist boxes only
create unhappy socialists, and red mahogany generally kicks ass…
Maybe it’s time to think "inside the box" eh?
Read about his makeover project here.
For what it is worth – I think I would enjoy a cubicle for a while!
Yes folks, after years of open plan, a cubicle offers a modicum of privacy which open plan does not. And I am so starved of privacy.
Escape the cubicle or go open-plan. Decide your move.
Great photo! That’s what working happy is all about, creating the space that brings you the most joy at work.
Wow! What a great niche opportunity this can become if companies open up to the idea: cubicle decorators.
I’m assuming this guy is making a statement. But i’m freaked out when I see cubes that over-decorated to look like home. That means the person is 1) spending time decorating vs doing actual work or 2) giving up free time after work to decorate. I want no association that my cube is a home away from home. To each their own I guess.
This is just brilliant. And with a beautiful result. Interested to know if his company lets him keep it.
You know how those things go. He does this and everyone thinks it’s cool. Then someone else mods his cube in a way that’s less cool, and so on. Eventually, they’re forced to ban all cubicle mods.
Does have my looking around my space, wondering what I could do to make this place look nicer.
I would have liked to hear more about how he did it. His description of the project doesn’t have much more information than yours.
Ask him Bob! I am sure he will fill you in on details. 🙂
