Obsessive's Desk / Desk

Obsessive's Desk
Obsessive's Desk

The desk is messy all the times.
This does not mean it is not tidied at all. No matter how hard I try to keep tidy,
it rarely works.
Like a habit, I spend some time on tidying the desk up.

It is the desk inducing us to tidy it up.
By recognising the place where I first put the things on the desk, the desk marks the right place of things.
Changes, objects' placements and absences on the desk, leave a trace on
thee desk that recognises the first look of the desk.
Thanks to this, users tend to place the things in right part of the desk and even new objects does not interfere other objects' tidiness.
