even massimo vignelli needs a power cord // 07 Oct 2010

Was interested to learn (via kottke) about this short film about desks from Imaginary Forces. And, like Jason, I love this photo of Massimo Vignelli's desk.

But unless Vignelli has an intern whose full time job is to quick (!) plug in the master's laptop anytime he's not looking to make sure the master's MacBook never runs out of power, then his desk most likely looks something like this.

Just sayin'.

Update: Walt Dickinson recommends that the master drill a hole in his desk in order to minimize how much cord lays there. The more I think about it, though, the more I'm of the opinion that he has a power supply intern, full time.
