Desks of Rochester: A Case Study

A desk, or workspace, can say a lot of things about a person. Most of us likely spend a lot of our day at our desk. This piece of furniture encompasses a large portion of our lives and serves as a testament to a person’s creative process. Each of our desks are spaces that are truly unique in basic structure, contents, and organization and can give an intimate perspective into a person’s daily habits, work flow, and thought process.

A desk is, in essence, an extension of ourselves.

With those ideals in mind, here are the desks of some of Rochester’s very own innovators including the highly unique, the exceedingly organized, and the just plain messy.
