Wrong for Hay Cork Cone and Magnetic Tower

Need a place for odd notes, photos and other such sundries? Consider Wrong For Hay’s Cork Cone, as it has plenty of room for a vertical tower of pinnables. And, if your paperclips need a home, perhaps you should take a look at the Magnetic Tower as well, as it will gather those small metal clips with ease.

Tanno Free Case

Pen and pencil cases aren’t just for school-age children, you know. Those of us on the go don’t want to leave our prized writing/drawing instruments behind, and a case that has a trick up its sleeve might be just the thing to keep our bags and workspaces organized (and clients and coworkers impressed?). Similar to vintage ‘trick boxes’, this Tanno Free Case requires one push of its wood button for the tray to pop out. Sort of fun, isn’t it? Fully constructed in wood save for the one metal spring, the case is a lesson in craftsmanship.

Light + Ladder Desk Accessories

Deliberate, simple, clean… maybe that’s how your coworkers describe you, but I’m talking about the walnut set you see above. Solid wood, brass, porcelain, and vegetable-tanned leather all work harmoniously together for a desk set that’s sure to say you mean business.

There’s the Leather Blotter, which features a hidden wooden compartment for pencils and business cards, the Pencil Cup, which has a sliding mechanism to easily access your writing utensils, and a Catch-All, which gives you a spot for Post-Its and little things like paperclips. Shall we call them desk successories?

Carl Auböck Oversized Paperclip

It’s a very, very large paperclip. Use it as a bookmark, as shown above, or as a paperweight. Considering it’s designed by Carl Auböck, and hand-crafted from solid brass in Auböck’s fourth-generation Viennese workshop, it will retain its value for years to come. Don’t believe me? Do a search for Auböck’s pieces on any collector’s site (or Ebay) and you’ll see. Consider this as a very nice gift for that someone who has everything (except a huge brass paperclip).

Concrete Small Format Tape Dispenser

Sure, you’ve seen concrete desk accessories by Magnus Pettersen before, but have you seen the red and blue tape dispensers? Your life is simply not complete until you consider just how good red tape in a red concrete tape dispenser looks. I’m kidding, of course, but it does look pretty sharp, as does the blue. This version is a little smaller than the original version, fyi.

Colorplay Hourglasses

You would use one of these hourglasses for a) timing your meditation, b) making sure you do the right amount of pushups/sit-ups, c) making sure you don’t spend too much time on social media, or d) tackling email. None of those sound very fun, do they? Let’s add e) taking a break from work for a (timed) spontaneous dance party.
