Alone With My Thoughts

Earlier this week I showed you my desk.  It’s a nice desk and I enjoy sitting here writing Looking At Glass and Designers on Design blogs.  I also sit here and spend loads of time on Twitter conversing with the world and microblogging.  Currently, I spend a minimum of 10 hours at my desk each day.  I have no television or radio in my office.  Very rarely do I listen to music while I am working.  I like to be alone with my thoughts.

Soooooo….

Don’t you think this office would be perfect for me?

Yes, please.

Located in Tossa De Mar, Spain, this home is currently offered by Sotheby’s Real Estate.  I can’t decide if I would get any work done in this office, but I would be willing to give it a try.

It is FRIDAY!!!

What are you doing this weekend?  I’ll be spending time with my family in Baltimore, reading good books, and having a few good laughs.

I’ll see you back here on Monday!

Decorative Glass in the Office

Have you ever considered using decorative glass in an office?  This KraftMaid cabinet photo shows an office space that is located in a kitchen alcove.  When designing an office space, consider using cabinetry with decorative glass or art glass cabinet inserts.  Think of all of the options for texture and color!  Now, go spend at least an hour imagining all of the glass choices for your office!

It is FRIDAY!

After looking at the jaw-dropping office space I’m adding an office clean-up to my list of tasks for the weekend.

Wishing you all a creative and organized weekend!

I’ll see you back here on Monday,

Water Tower Offices

Offices Water Tower in Bussum, Vocus Architecten

In April 2010, the most sustainable office building completed in the Netherlands: the water tower in Bussum. The project includes the renovation of the old water tower in 1897 and linked to a new office building of 3500 m2 in total.

High Res Images and Glass

3form recently featured a project, the Arkansas Institute, that used High Res images and glass.  The photos on the glass really looked great. 

A picture is worth a thousand words, so designers placed glass fins along the side of the structure that evoke the pages of a book. The fins utilize 3form HighRes Pressed Glass XT to depict scenes and people from the rich history of Arkansas. The historic images were selected from the archives of the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, which is an integral part of the Arkansas Studies Institute.

Today I am dreaming of designing an office space and what I would do with a glass partition wall.  I would use High Res image printed glass in the partition.  If you read this blog regularly, you know that each Friday I have fun with old photographs.  So, my office would have glass walls like these.

I would swap out the clear glass for High Res image printed glass.  Each office would have a different image.

If I had a technology company I would use these images on glass for my office:

Perhaps, with the work I do, I would use each a combination of drafting, office, and technology!  How fun!  The possibilities are endless.   Imagine your space, office, or home  using High Res image print glass with retro images.  What pictures would you use?
