Evolution of the Desk

Evolution of the Desk” is an initiative borne out of the Harvard Innovation Lab. The goal is to illustrate the impact that technology has had on our lives over the last 35 years. A cluttered desk, complete with a rolodex, a file cabinet, and a fax machine, transforms into a much cleaner, simpler surface consisting of only a laptop and a mobile phone. Of course, some things in life – like the sun – are everlasting, so the shades persist throughout the years.

All of the vintage items featured in this video are authentic. The Macintosh Classic, corded phone, fax machine, globe, corkboard, Polaroid camera, and rolodex were all purchased through individual sellers on Ebay. The radio was acquired from Goodwill, and the picture frame came from pictureframes.com. The rest of the items were found lying around in basements, storage units, and garage sales. And the sunglasses? Those were easy since we actually still own a pair.

How has your desk changed over the years?

  1. The next type of juicer is called a masticating juicer because it extracts juice using a repetitive pressing movements.
    Most high functioning juicers will cost somewhere in the range of $200 to $2,000.
    When compared to a centrifugal juicer, you will see
    that the juices from this masticating juicer are much darker because
    of the way it extracts all parts of the vegetable instead of just the juice.
