If you have a minimalist desk for work, it's time for you to think about minimalist desk setup. But do you know that minimalist desk setup can easily build with cardboard. I have made it and used it for 2 months. Surprisingly, my cardboard desk setup won the first place for national interior design competition in my country Indonesia.
The desk setup is consist of a desk shelf with 3 floors and a laptop stand which can be used in 2 positions. They are very useful to organize a minimalist desk so you can have more space for work.
