From the desk of... a desk inspired project from Hand-Eye Supply

The desk is a delicate thing: functional but personal, cleared or cluttered, sometimes messy and sometimes meticulously kempt, but always useful. This Hand-Eye Supply publication pays homage to the often overlooked ecosystem of the desk, its tools and its diverse users. Portland, OR hosts an amazing array of talented desk users and an accordingly beautiful array of desks. Here’s a spectrum of workspaces and creative workers who love them.
