I’m thinking about the environment in which I work: it should be about utility.
If I don’t use whatever’s in there, then I don’t need to see it.
There’s a better place for it somewhere else.
Which makes me think what exactly should be the focus?
What is the focus in your workroom?
Is it the computer on the desk? A pile of books? Wires?
How about putting the instrument in the middle of the room.
Make that your ‘desk’.
