Pahana Alo's Workstation Update: Towards Minimalism

Feb 24, 2012

The last time we featured Pahana Alo's setup, it featured a glass desk and two low monitors, that were optimally positioned for his workstation. This new update to the office includes a new desk and new computers in an effort to make the space as minimal as possible.

In an effort to make his setup more minimal, Pahana Alo got rid of his dual monitors and opted to get an iMac. His new setup eschews clutter in a drastic fashion, allowing the few objects that are in his office to be highlighted simply by their presence.

There is even an Ikeahack included in his setup. He used a IKEA Vika Amon table top that rests on aerated concrete blocks, for a sort of post-industrial look. The desk is complimented by a no name cantilever office chair, which works well in this setup.

The iMac is a 21.5", 2.7GHz with 8GB of RAM. The position is also unusual. Instead of using the stand on his desk, Pahana Alo recessed it so that the monitor fits flush with the surface of the desk. There is lots of storage in the form of IKEA Malm chests, which are sadly no longer available. He's also got a MacBook Pro 15" to take care of his mobile computing needs.
