Der er et herk å gå på jobb. Spesielt om man bor i et land hvor man må kaste seg over brøytekanter før sola har kommet seg horisonten, hvor snørret fryser til is, og hvor veiene er tette og bussene er fulle, akkurat når du skal komme deg på jobb.

When visiting the Design Museum in Ghent a couple of weeks ago, I came across a very interesting piece of furniture. Typically for
