I found this beautiful picture of English artist and designer Anthony Burrill’s desk on the Creative Review while I was combing the internets this past weekend. I figured I would bend the From the Desk of… rules slightly to feature Mr. Burrill’s awesome little office. If you want to learn more about Anthony, Cool Hunting has a good post on Burrill and his work. His workspace kind of reminds me of one of my all time favorites, Marc Newson. Maybe it is just the yellow bucket shades that are stirring that up in me. Either way, well done sir!

From the Desk of… is a window into the world and workspace of some of ACL’s most stylish friends.

Aside from being a painfully nice guy, Josh Peskowitz is one of the gentlemen behind the stylish and popular Men.Style.com. Much like last week’s subject Alexander Olch, Mr. Peskowitz prefers the less is more approach to organization.

Mr. Peskowitz’s description:

My desk is usually a mess, it used to bother me but now I am at peace with it. I know it’s a tired excuse to some when they hear people like me say they can’t find anything when the desk is clean, but in my case it happens true. The way my memory works, it’s much easier to remember where I saw something last than to have a “filing” system or “whatever”. Except for stamps, I can never find those damn things.

In addition to being a talented filmmaker, designer, artist and bespoke clipboard maker, Alexander Olch is the subject of this week’s From the Desk of… column.

Mr. Olch’s description

This is the first studio I ever rented – and have been working here now for seven years. It was proudly furnished at low-budget: Desk – 1 inch thick MDF board on 2 steel sawhorses, chair from the old Chelsea flea market, long pine wood shelves with two coats of Red Devil glossy white enamel paint, Steel shelves at right from B & Z Steel Shelving in SoHo, with the same paint. Computer is still the same – Mac OS 9.2.2. Electronics all old and borrowed – Pioneer SX-737 tuner, Panasonic Easa-Phone, pro VHS deck, and speakers all from 1990. Black framed photograph (center top) is the first I ever took – in 1983 of the waves in Ogunquit, Maine.
