Artistic, innovative, and observant, Ray Eames was a saver and collector of things that inspired her — and needed those things to surround her as she worked, as evidenced by her desk at the Eames Office (above, shot in 1976). Get a glimpse at several spaces that take a page out of Ray’s book and showcase the many items that motivate their occupants during the workday.

The workspace occupied by Brian Haines, Alejandra Abad, Natasha Maria Fernandez-Fountain, and Bruno Torquato — otherwise known as design studio and collaborative One by Four — has walls and windows filled with creativity and color. (Photo: One by Four)
Materials and tools for art, design, and illustration projects take over the work surfaces at Logical Art, a creative design studio in London founded by Yoo-kyung Shin and Hanhsi Chen. (Photo: Logical Art)
