As far as work spaces go, you can’t get more inspirational than a wall of 10,000 records. A jazz aficionado with a weakness for record collecting, the famously reclusive writer Haruki Murakami has opened up his study for inspection, sharing an interactive tour of the space on his own website.
Murakami says he almost always works while listening to music, and that of the 10,000 or so records in his enviable floor-to-ceiling collection, the majority are jazz. His sound system doesn’t look half bad either.
Have a look for yourself on Murakami’s website.
