Design in your home office

A nice piece in today's Guardian about making your office both more stylish and healthier. The main specialist quoted is Jeremy Myerson, Professor of Design Studies at the Royal College of Art who is a specialist in office design. He has a book out, Space to Work (Laurence King, £35) in which he looks at ideal offices around the world. He says: "It's all about local control - windows, lights, air - unlike the 1990s when it was all done by central computers, which was like hell. Can you organise it with IT so you can get your emails and files from home? Or negotiate with your boss to work from home a couple of days a week?" The article suggests the MacBook Pro is a good example of clever design in the office, a statement with which I entirely agree - both this blog and The Shed are produced on one.
