Odds are you’ve encountered Vitra’s work before (although it was most likely unpackaged)—their line includes classic works by design legends Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Verner Panton, Alexander Girard, Jean Prouvé, and Jasper Morrison.

A personal photography project by Justin Chung, Faculty Department documents homes and workspaces of creatives. They are not just tours of spaces however, they are something more. Chung, inspired by the work, was most intrigued by how spaces and people’s daily lives contributed to productivity and happiness. The preface of the book contains the details of development, from photographs of Chung’s workspace to typeface choice. It is something that is atypical, but is very fitting given the book’s subject. They have recently released the overrun copies of the limited edition book, you can find them at Faculty Department.
