Desk Organizers

Table Island

Here’s a different sort of organizer that looks better being used than sitting empty. This ‘island’ will hold all manner of miscellany- phone, keys, wallet, devices- on its compressed cork landscape. There are three staggered dividers, any of which would also hold an iPad in easy reading position. It could live in the kitchen as a recipe reading stand or perhaps on your desk or entryway table as a charging station and catch-all for those important pocket contents.

Postino Desk Accessories

Looking for a set of desk accessories? The Postino collection by Alexis Georgacopoulos are inspired by the folds of a paper envelope, if you haven’t already guessed. The open edges give the aluminum material “a conceptual lightness”, though I’m sure if you decide to throw them at anyone they’ll be appropriately heavy.

Up Filer Universal Vertical Filing Rack

What better way to start off a Monday than with a filing rack? After all, filing papers is the most exciting thing in the world*, so therefore, anything to help that lovely job go faster/better is worth a gander. This filing rack differs from most in that it is a wall mounted vertical storage rack, which allows files and other flat content to vary by size yet still remain visible. Labels are located at the bottom of files, allowing for a quick visual scan, and the pivoting hanger allows for easy addition and removal of items. If you work with different sizes of paper/artwork, this could be a very smart storage solution.

Collator 10

You’ll not be surprised that this expandable rack was originally made out of wood in 1924, as it’s most certainly not the most sleek and modern storage option out there. However, that’s its distinct appeal; the industrial quality of (recycled) aluminum makes for a no-nonsense file system that allows you to easily see all papers, projects, etc. and have them right at hand. The collator can be hung vertically on the wall or kept horizontally on your work surface. Previously priced at $140, it’s now on sale for $98.

Note: Or, as Brian and Joe commented below, you can get one from a stationery or office supply store for around $30. Thanks guys. Here are a few links: $26.12 at
thetwistergroup.com, $27.68 at shoplet.com, or $33.02 at Amazon.

Made in Germany.
