How truly creative of Michiel van der Kley to have devised a portable office not in the shape of a cubicle. One half of Globus is for sitting, swivel-style, while the other can be used for your laptop or lunch. We especially like that it is literally mobile, with its wheels lockable once you find a place to rest and reflect. We assumed that it was a concept, but were apparently wrong as it is available in many shades and colors. Contact Artifort if you want more info.

If you like a spotless cubicle…check out the USB Desk Vacuum Cleaner. We admit the concept sounds a little ridiculous, even when compared to the wackiest USB gadgets. But this retro-looking vacuum actually works, making it a great—and amusing—way to keep your desk clean of crumbs, and it’s certainly more fun than boring old Windex and paper towels. Just beware that owning one could earn you the rep of being the “quirky one” at your job….that is, if you care about such things. Currently sold out, you can pre-order for $64 USD.

We’ve all gotten so angry at work we just wanted to punch a
files. For these moments, we highly suggest the Desktop Speed Bag, made by Everlast, no less. The Speed Bag has a terrific old school look to it (think “Cinderella Man”) and is made of vinyl with a suction cup base and heavy duty spring. It also comes with a pump and inflating needles, and measures 7.5” diam., 15"H. Yes, your co-workers may deem you weird for having this, but it beats those pesky assault charges you’ll narrowly avoid. Not surprisingly, the $32 USD Speed Bag is currently on backorder until early December.
