“Basically, you have nothing. Really, nothing at all, except the green light to start a design studio and a realistic budget that would allow you to purchase all the necessities for it to function. It sounds impossibly utopian, I know, but letís give this a try. Forget ñ for a brief moment ñ about worldly realities like clients, employees or time. What does a design office need to function? If you could buy anything you wanted ñ skipping the luxuries ñ what would be on your shopping list? Software, hardware, furniture, paper samples, office and art suppliesÖ Whatís indispensable for good, well-oiled functioning?”
