It wasn’t long ago that I was in class sat at a desk. I wouldn’t be alone if I said that I used to take the odd mid-day nap when Chemistry got a bit unbearable. Nick DeMarco’s project, Day Dreamer, works with that impulse, not against it. Aside from a notepad-size writing surface, the desktop is made of a nice, spongy foam. As fun and amusing as the idea may seem, DeMarco designed the desk to encourage and promote better health and wellness and to overall de-stress a desk-user.
Nick DeMarco explains how his project promotes this vision:
“I decided to focus not on the specific causes of stress (traffic, money, family, etc.) but instead to encourage a laid-back view towards life. The messaging of ‘work’ associated with the desk form are put towards the ‘work’ of introspection, relaxation and thoughtful meditation.”
