Desert Island Desks with Emma Green

Emma Green

This month we’ve cast Perkins+Will’s Emma Green away on our desert island. Here are the things she’d like to have with her – and also her additions to the recently installed Desert Island Jukebox.

Bar

A well-stocked cocktail bar. Best to start with the essentials and extremely important to stay hydrated in the sun.

Running gear

Yep, I’m that bore! I started running because you can do it pretty much anywhere, even a desert island. It helps clear my mind and, most importantly, it doesn’t involve the gym!

Notebook

At least one notebook. Sorry to be clichéd but I can’t function without a notebook. Sketching, doodling, making list after list, I’m not sure if I’m forgetful or disorganised (potentially both) but, either way, I can’t survive without one.

Camera

Plus a solar panel power pack (obviously). I picked up photography when I became too lazy to paint – and it sort of took over. It’s an obsessive, creative outlet, or perhaps I’m just a bit voyeuristic?

iPhone

Plus a solar panel power pack (there’s a pattern forming here). I’m entirely addicted to being connected – family, friends, work, music, news – all that information at your fingertips is just too much to leave at home.  I’ll just need the island WiFi code please!

Bed

Last but not least, my bed. I’m afraid I draw the line at attempting to sleep in a hammock!

Jukebox Choices

Where Is My Mind? – Pixies

Can’t Stop – Red Hot Chili Peppers

Running on Faith – Eric Clapton
