Björn Stövesand's Desk
Hi I’m Bjoern. I’m a PhD student working in linguistics and teacher-training at Bielefeld University. Besides my studies I am a freelance writer and blogger, so writing is kind of an everyday acitivity for me!
Can you tell us something about your desk setup?
I’m a true apple fanboy, so I use their products for everything. I tried out different setups for my desk but during the christmas-vacation I had a bit time to rearrange the whole room. You can see what came out of it on the pictures above.
Is there anything you would like to improve on this setup?
I think about getting a new table with a brighter color. Black tends to look dirty all the time. In addition I dream of an Apple Cinema Display instead of that Samsung screen. But that is more like an fanboy thing, I think…
But I am quite comfortable with that setup at the moment. For now there are no necessary changes on the list.
Is there something on your desk which helps you stay focused? What is it?
I’ve chosen that minimalistic setup to eliminate sources of distraction. So the whole setup is kind of a focusing-tool with no unnecessary stuff. That little owl was a gift by my girlfriend so it got a special permission being a non-productive object on the desk. It can be proud! :-)
