A very clever approach by The Economist for displaying creative people’s work space, the objects in that space, and why they’re there. There is some fascinating stuff here.

I particularly love Mercedes Bunz’s quote about her laptop:

The laptop is a part of me. Everywhere you travel, everywhere you go, it’s part of you. It’s a very strange object because a laptop is something where your private life and your friends meet your working life and stress. It’s all on one object now, and it’s the centre of my little world. I’m a writer, that’s what I do most. My ideas happen while I’m typing.
