The Daydreamer Desk by Nick V. DeMarco is a commentary on daily work life and the desire to escape from the postmodern malaise of ones job into a world of introspection. The project’s goal is not to encourage employees to spend every moment, including sleep, at their desk but instead to encourage a laid back attitude towards work and life. The Daydreamer Desk suggests that brain work, thoughtful meditation, and reflection are the most important kinds of work, which will ultimately improve all forms of output. The Zen Desk takes the idea of brain work even further, eliminating the surface completely and replacing it with a sand zen garden. With the familiar form of the office desk still in place, the messaging of work is now put towards thought and reflection.
