Landscape by Yuko Miyazaki

If you often catch yourself staring out of the window longingly while at work, Yuko Miyazaki’s desk can offer you an alternative mental escape. She has incorporated a mini-landscape with different natural features into a personal workplace to revive flagging concentration and inspiration. Nestled into this Landscape desk are: a hilly cushion — soft as soil; a lake-like basin for fresh flowers; and a metal mirror to catch the light. The idea comes from her own experience of the soothing effect of nature. “While working, I often go for a walk to relax and get refreshed. It gives me the energy to keep going,” she says.
