What’s that old line about a carrot or a stick?
As most of you may know, I’ve been pretty much a carrot guy my whole professional life, opting to try to motivate those around me to do better and achieve more, rather than scaring them into it. But don’t think for a minute I don’t see the occasional wisdom in the other, sterner and much more in-your-face style of attitude adjustment.
As such, I found myself utterly blown away during an afternoon session at Greenbuild 2016 yesterday during a presentation by the world-renowned polar explorer, author, photographer and documentarian, Sebastian Copeland. Copeland, whose life and work on global climate change, and in particular, carbon’s impact on the earth’s ice cap, is the stuff of legend. He spent an hour giving a roomful of us some of the absolutely toughest love I’ve ever seen dished out at Greenbuild.

If you're at work right now, you're probably too cold. Or too hot. If you have a working thermostat nearby, there's a good chance that it's the thing you disagree about most with the person sitting next to you. It seems like an intractable problem, because people inherently prefer different temperatures. A 2015 study found that women get cold much more quickly than men. (It also pointed out that most offices still use a decades-old formula for setting temperature that's based on the average man, which is why men are a little more likely to be comfortable.)
We all have those moments when we wish we could just hang out in bed all day long. Well, there’s a furniture line that is practically made for those Netflix-and-chill moods.
Enter, the Blandito, the lazy person’s dream chair-cushion-pad thingy. Made of malleable materials, it’s basically a flat pillow that can fold up and be secured into whatever shape you want it to be — the top pick being a cuddle taco (or clam?), of course. Made by Oradaria Design, the Blandito molds into the desired shape and is then secured by two wooden tapestry balls. Once you’re set up, you’re not going anywhere. So, you can feel like you got out of bed, but not really.
Italian furniture manufacturer FIMAR, have designed a wardrobe that hides a 32 inch flat screen television on a pullout rack.
The rack, named GHOST, can hold a TV screen of up to 32 inches, and the rack features a gas piston that raises the panel the television is attached to, making it easy to open and close. There is also an articulated arm, allowing the television to be easily turned for optimum viewing.
As more workers look for desks to fight the health effects of sitting all day, Rosemont-based Life Fitness has stepped in to capture some of the growing demand. Life Fitness, an exercise equipment manufacturer owned by Lake Forest-based Brunswick, established InMovement in August. Its workspace products range from a $159.99 under-desk stepper to a $4,599 treadmill desk.
How intimidating would it be to your new clients if you showed up with your laptop in one hand, and in the other, your own darn desk stowed away in a case.
