Design by Castor, 2012. Made in Canada by Castor Design. Black anodized finish. 96 inch cord ...Read more

ErgoErgo

You know how a Yoga/Fitness Ball is supposed to be better for you to sit on because it engages your core muscles? That's all fine, but they're a little unsightly for some interiors, not to mention huge when in a small office space. Therein lies the market for the ErgoErgo: it allows for the same sitting experience in a more acceptable stool design. The body can rock gently in ...Read more

Cork Map

If you're running a global enterprise, what better way to show off than with a cork map in your office? I'm halfway kidding, of course, as a cork map might be better suited to a kid's room than a swanky need-to-impress-clients sort of office. In any case, it's a cork map, and you could pin all sorts of stuff to it until your heart's content. Mark where you've been, chart ...Read more

Filo Tape Dispenser

Talk about minimalist office supplies, could this tape dispenser be reduced any further? Made of mirror polished stainless steel, it measures 2.25" wide and 3.25" in depth. That could be the smallest dispenser ever, or at least the smallest (and least likely to offend anyone's eyes) available in today's marketplace. It certainly won't win points for ease of use, but for those of you that want a dispenser to fit in a ...Read more
