Dwell's Favorite 35 Office Design Photos And Ideas

Whether it be a study, library, or craft room, the modern office is a tranquil place for you to flex your creativity, conduct meetings, and carry out day-to-day business. Cram the shelves with your favorite books, put the table in the middle of your room, or splurge on the perfect desk lamp—a great office should reflect your personal taste and inspire your best work.

Located off of the kitchen, Vivi’s office disappears behind sliding walls covered in black chalkboard paint from Behr.
A Paul McCobb reeded glass panel provides a contemplative backdrop for a walnut Knoll writing desk and Bertoia Side Chair.
Graham, an entrepreneur, works from a fold-down New Table Concept by Resource Furniture. The reusable earthenware mug, a replica of the classic coffee-to-go cups served at New York’s Greek diners, is his own design.
A vintage stool, a design that once was a staple of Greek classrooms, is tucked under the office desk on a landing leading to a balcony. The visual theme of the vertical wooden slats repeats itself here, including on a closet door. “They have no handles,” Ritenour says of the closet doors. “The lines are the door handles; you have to know to grab them.”
In the dining room, a Smoke chair by Marten Baas for Moooi keeps company with a glass-and-ceramic vase by Hella Jongerius and a mirrored steel painting by artist Michelangelo Pistoletto.
Reeve's partner, Michela Meazza, uses built-in closets for her home office. The imposing gunmetal gray doors can simply be swung shut at the end of a long day's work.
Lara's home office consists of a MacBook Air and Ferruccio Laviani Abat-Jour lamp for Kartell.
The workstation and the cabinets are by Korben Mathis Woodworking; the desk lamp is  from TaoTronics.

The office houses the letter “U" as well as cameras.
A movable wall clad in wainscoting on one side slides along tracks in the dining-room ceiling, dividing the room into a meeting space and a library. The Shiro Simple Modern Pendant lights can be easily removed and reattached after moving the wall.
A writing desk is paired with a classic Series 7 chair by Arne Jacobsen.
Inspired by modern Japanese minimalism, the walls of this two bedroom apartment was demolished and the space transformed into a studio with an “Engawa” – a space  between the indoor and outdoor areas often found in traditional Japanese architecture – which maximizes light penetration into the interior. Kevin’s home also has a working desk fitted with a retractable curtain for privacy.
A second bedroom was converted into a home office/dining room. A Dieter Rams 606 Universal Shelving System (below and opposite) lines the wall. The “Ziggy Diamond” wallpaper (behind the surreal Erle Loran painting) comes from Flavor Paper, a New Orleans firm that prints wall coverings to order, and the ingenious folding table is by Swedish designer Bruno Matthson.
An office nook and library can participate in the open plan or disappear behind pocket doors.
Van Everbroeck’s home office occupies the end of one arm of the building. An industrial outdoor light fixture is mounted on a black-painted steel post. The orange of the back wall was chosen to work with the glowing rays of the sunset and the silhouetted, dancing shadows of leaves.
Lawrence Weiner sits at his daylit desk. The bare walls are perfect for tacking 

up new projects, and the steel ductwork gives the space an industrious feel.
Stripping paint to reveal the beautiful riveting and aluminum was one the hardest but most rewarding tasks.  To me, revealing the structure and construction honors the original craftsmanship that went into this trailer.
