Desk Organizers

Virgo Metal Wall Organizer

This wall organizer is on sale from $59.95, which makes it an absolute steal if you’re in dire need of a landing pad for notes and messages (and keys and letters, etc.). It looks like powder coated steel, but you might want to email the retailer before purchasing just to make sure (and be sure to ask after the dimensions too so you’re not surprised when it arrives and it’s bigger/smaller than you had hoped).

Letterpress Action Clips

Even though i’m paper free–these still appeal to the organizer in me.

Noone likes an office manager shouting at you, so employ these clips instead. Each one has a call to action; review, file, pay & urgent. Each clip (1.75″) is made from thick, letterpressed board with a metal clip attached to the back. 4 clips served up in a little tub.

Utensilo

Occasionally we’ll get emails from some of you saying that links on old posts need updating (and thank you very much for those emails, because there’s no way we’re able to spot them all on our own), and a few of you have noticed lately that this Utensilo post from Oct 2, 2007 needed some attention. So.

The Unten.Silo was designed in the 1960s by Dorothe Becker and Ingo Maurer, and has become a somewhat iconic storage solution. I love the fact that it keeps everything in its right place, whether it be in a office workspace, playroom, or kitchen.

Available in white, red, or black.

Daniel Emma Desk Accessories

It’s difficult to convey just how lovely these desk accessories are. First seen at 100% Design* last year and more recently spotted over at Theo, the collection has not lost any bit of its initial charm, though I am a bit dismayed I can’t quite splurge on the whole set in one go. Instead, I’ll have to settle for buying one piece at a time until my desktop is graced with the complete collection. Each piece has a satisfying heft, and though petite in scale, there’s a distinct beauty in the choice of materials for each simple shape.

*Not that it matters to your purchasing decision, but the Australian Designer duo Daniel and Emma seem like incredibly nice people and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for them.

USB Battleship

Organize your cables with this USB Battleship Hub. Created by the design duo Giffin’ Termeer, the idea was that the “boat shape could be an ‘organizing image’ to visually manage the tangle”… it’s also weighted so that it won’t topple over.

Transformer Filepack

Well, looky here. This folder transforms into a carrying-box with just a few steps. So if you have just a short stack of papers, the file is perfect… and if your short stack becomes tall, make the file into the carrying box to accommodate. Pretty smart.

I just stumbled across this neat set of cast concrete desk accessories from Israeli design group Umamy. Simply titled “Concrete Office Helpers”, this line of organizers are sure to add a bit of industrial-chic styling (and quite a bit of heft) to your desk.  The entire set currently costs $300, but individual pieces can also be purchased.

Gom Series Pen Tray

No more searching around for your favorite pens or pencils, because if you get this tray, you’ll use it. Sure, it’s a tad pricy, but depositing your writing implements on the soft (therefore quiet) rubber surface would appear to be entirely satisfactory.

Wood Boxes with Lacquered Lids

I’ve never been into West Elm’s style ever, a bit too drab and generally unexciting for me. However they’re definitely on the right track here with these new wood boxes. Woodgrain combined with super glossy lacquer is a great combination.

Material: Ash
Dimensions: Small 9″w x 4″d x 1.75″h, Large 12″w x 8″d x 4″h
