Choosing the Right Aesthetics

Mike begins by sharing his journey of moving to a new space, which gave him the opportunity to create the dream office setup he had envisioned. He emphasizes the importance of a well-designed workspace, especially for those who work from home.

Mike explains how he drew inspiration from online themes and room designs to create a modern and bold look. He opted for a combination of dark black and blue on one wall (Black Forest from Deluxe) and a contrasting white on the other. The transformation with a fresh coat of paint is truly remarkable.

The Heart of the Setup: The Desk

The central piece of Mike's setup is the suede desk from Ergonofis, a solid wood motorized standing desk. It boasts a large 72 by 30-inch workspace, providing ample room for productivity. The desk's integrated touch interface allows for quick height adjustments, making it adaptable for both sitting and standing work.

Function Meets Style with Accessories

To complement his desk, Mike has chosen the Ergonofis neat filing cabinet with walnut panels. This sleek addition keeps less-used items within easy reach. A desk pad by Grovemade not only protects the desk but also adds a modern touch while being durable and functional.

The Power Behind the Desk
For his content creation needs, Mike uses a Mac Mini with an M1 chip for video and photo editing. He enhances its capabilities with a two-bay external drive and an external GPU (RX580) for efficient data management and editing. To keep his workspace clutter-free, Mike's setup includes long Thunderbolt 4 cables for easy cable management.

A Gamer's Paradise

Mike is also a gamer and uses the MSI GE66 Raider, a laptop with an RTX 3080, for gaming. He shares how the laptop's powerful performance allows for smooth gaming experiences. Additionally, Mike demonstrates a seamless switch between his Mac Mini and laptop thanks to a monitor with a built-in KVM switch.

Ergonomics and Comfort

Understanding the importance of ergonomics, Mike invested in a Herman Miller Allen monitor arm to ensure the right monitor height for a comfortable posture. He also highlights the benefits of the BenQ ScreenBar Plus for lighting and eye comfort. His choice of chair, the Secretlab Titan Evo, offers adjustable armrests and integrated lumbar support, catering to long hours of work and relaxation.

The Unique Resting Space

In an innovative twist, Mike's setup includes a zero-gravity setup, allowing him to lie down comfortably for relaxation, providing a unique dimension to his workspace.

Hydration and Cleanliness

Mike introduces the LARQ bottle, a high-tech water purification system that self-cleans using UVC LED technology. It ensures clean and safe drinking water. The battery life of the LARQ bottle is impressive, making it a practical choice for hydration during work.

Adding Personality and Style

Mike adds a personal touch to his workspace by incorporating decorative elements. He uses panels and wall art to create a warm and organic ambiance. Additionally, cable management plays a crucial role in maintaining a clean and organized workspace, and Mike demonstrates his efficient cable management techniques.

Mike's setup is designed to be convertible into a living room setup, offering the possibility of multiple filming locations and diverse content creation opportunities. His forward-thinking approach allows for adaptability and growth.
