Create a minimalist workspace that takes cues from the hippest startups

By Eric Mutrie

Cupertino by BoConcept
This white lacquered wall desk is ideal for a home that transitions between work and play. The oak-veneered laptop tray folds down to reveal storage compartments and a cable management slot. A Bluetooth speaker can be installed behind the top felt panel to pump out ambient jams. $930, at BoConcept

Dotty clock by Alessi
Modelled after astronomy instruments, Abi Alice’s steel timepiece is sure to appeal to graphic designers who worship at the altar of simple geometric forms. The second hand makes a continuous sweep, meaning no sonic ticking to distract you from tasks. Choose from blue, white and yellow colourways. $170, at Bergo Designs

Triplet by Umbra Shift
Still building a library of industry-relevant literature? Not to worry – Ferréol Babin’s Douglas fir and powder-coated steel shelving unit looks best when minimally propped. At just under a metre tall, it keeps everything within arm’s reach when you’re seated in your desk chair. Pair up multiple shelves as your collection grows. The back panel can be installed on either side for optimal visual balance. $400, at Umbra

Pivot shelf by Hay
Stash your stapler in plain view and avoid having to dig through drawers before that big meeting. Lex Pott’s powder-coated steel pedestal is equal parts wall art and functional storage space. Choose from various colours and configurations – including one designed for corners that maximizes tight real estate. From $175, at Urban Mode
