The efficiency of a man’s grind is directly proportional to how aesthetically pleasing his workspace is.

More the handsome, more the work gets done.

Them’s facts, man.

So we asked our design-savvy friends at Field Design to curate a smart guide to a better office.

Field Design is a local industrial design studio whose goods — or “modern antiques” — are the apple of the working gentleman’s eye. We couldn’t think of more fitting counsel to help you clean up your desk and be more productive this new year.
