Get Busy with Desktime Shared Creative Work Space

Rent by the Day, Week, or Month

desktime the coop chicago!

If you work from home, you’re either:
a) still in your pj’s.
b) wrist-deep in a jar of peanut butter.
c) “working” in front of the TV.
d) conversing with Toby. Toby is your dog.

You could use some human contact. With Desktime, you can work — and make friends doing it. The just-launched company is a directory of local spaces with open desks you can rent by the day, week, or month.

Most of the spots are used by creative types (architects, photographers, Web designers, writers) — the idea being creativity breeds community and vice versa. Pick your hood, resource requirements (Wi-Fi, parking, kitchen, pets, printer, storage), and preferred environment.

The Pumping Station is ideal for coders (bonus: woodworking tools); The Writers WorkSpace is a quiet studio atmosphere; The Coop members eat family lunch together. Each is well designed, affordable, and fun. And at the end of the day, you’re home again.
