100 Well-Equipped Workstation Innovations

From Private Office Pods to Cosmetic Artist Vanities

— July 1, 2012 — Art & Design
In an age of so-called neverending distractings thanks to incessant email checking, Twitter, Facebook and the like, well-equipped workstation innovations can make all the difference when it comes to office productivity.

Whether you're a student, an artist, a commuter or someone who works in a cubicle all day long, you can find something to keep you concentrated and organized throughout your daily tasks. Even though there are websites and iPhone apps that offer help like virtual to-do lists, sometimes a physical office tweak helps the mind to get down to business.

Don't be fooled, however, because despite all the gizmos and gadgets featured here in these well-equipped workstation innovations, you'll still need to simply sit down and "do" to get anything done. But it'll just be perhaps a little bit easier, and maybe even a little less boring.
