Try this link which has a version of ObjectDock for win 8:
ObjectDock for Windows 8 to Customize Desktop

Once you've installed and configured the app to your liking you can always right click the Task bar, choose properties and click 'auto hide task bar'.

If you want to find a wallpaper similar to the one shown then try this site here:

It's one of the best sites I know for wallpapers.

The actual desktop icons can be physically moved by yourself over to the left hand side of the screen.

It won't be exactly like the screen you provided for example but very close.
