Meticulously Modern and Minimal

Meticulously Modern and Minimal

Over the top, multi-monitored workstations aren't the only ones that make us happy. This minimal, clean, and simple workstation sets itself apart thanks to the careful curated organization. This nominal, aesthete's desk uses some of our favorite pieces of furniture to highlight a place that anyone would love to spend hours in.

Using the word 'ultimate' to describe a workstation may seem like overkill, but there is a beauty to the simplicity of the things that were used in this corner office. While many would like to have ten screens above their heads, each of them displaying something different, some of us would just like a beautiful space in which to work in. Linhgo's workstations seems an example of this, as even though the iMac isn't the most powerful desktop computer available, it does its job well as and its minimal footprint highlights the effectiveness of this simple setup.

Linhgo explains that he has been fortunate enough to create his ultimate home office setup, mainly furnished with the items that he's coveted over the past few years. For now, it's still a work in progress, as he states that he needs artwork, a wall clock, and some shelving to finish off his space.

By far, the Herman Miller Airia desk is the most expensive item in his setup ($2,100). However, since this isn't an over the top home office, with multiple monitors that needs a lot of space, Lunhgo can get away with a simple Artemide Tizio Task Lamp,which can be found for online for $365, and a Herman Miller Mirra chair, which we found on eBay for $399. If you take in account that the Airia desk can be used for years with different setups, the overall cost isn't that bad if you consider the look and feel that it gives to this home office. If you're able to find some of these items, or items of similar quality in the second hand market, then the total cost diminishes significantly.
