Pulp Bulletin Board

Such a smart use of old magazines- I like the fact you can ‘wedge’ paper in between the pages too…

“Pulp Bulletin Board is made from densely packed used magazines and works just like a normal bulletin board. You can also wedge in business cards and other materials and skip the push-pin all together.”

12″ square.

Alice Park Felt Office/Desk Set

These would be just the thing to jump start some desk organization.

“Hand-made entirely of felt, these handy grey and green boxes have inset
areas to place pens and pencils, rubber bands, paper clips or any other
small pieces of desktop detritus. The more-organized user can fold the
boxes in half to cover their coveted supplies, while a freer soul can
leave them open, perhaps allowing small binder clips to mingle with the
thumbtacks. Modular and aesthetically quiet, these simple rectilinear
shapes are sized to scale, providing an invaluable organizational tool.”

Grey felt, 80% wool, 20% nylon; green felt, 100% wool.

Small box (two included), closed: H 1.5″ W 3.25″ D 3.25″, open: H .75″ W 6.75″ D 3.25″
Medium box (one included), closed: H 1.5″ W 3.25″ D 4.25″, open: H .75″ W 6.75″ D 4.25
Large box (one included), closed: H 1.5″ W 3.25″ D 11″, open: H .75″ W 6.75″ D 11″
