Trace Paper/Pen Holder

A place for everything and everything in its place…that’s what comes to mind when admiring this lovely trace paper holder. Even if you don’t use tracing paper, it does look like a very nice catch-all for desk items.

“The ubiquitous roll of trace has long adorned architects’ desks. As ours inevitably wound up in a drawer, only to succumb to marks and tearing, we had in our minds that there should be a better place for such an important tool. The result is Place for Trace.” – Straight from the mouths of New York City-based, O’Brian Muehleisen Architecture Studio, who have designed this simple yet ingenious wood trace holder for architects.

Able to hold a standard roll of trace, with room for up to 15 pens and pencils.
Available in four finishes: Walnut, Cherry, Oak or Maple

Dimensions: 12″w x 3.5″d x 1.5″h

Areaware Desk Set from Singgih Kartono

These hand-crafted wood desk accessories will add a little bit more warmth to a work area and perhaps a little bit more pleasure in daily office tasks. (That’s just a guess, of course, if you hate your job I doubt a wood stapler will change that.)

Hand-crafted in an Indonesian farming village, this desk set follows the best sustainable practices in terms of materials and production. The designer’s use of T-shape joints insures strength and adds a beautiful design detail. It is his quest to achieve functionality and absolute simplicity. The desk set includes four components: a tape dispenser, stapler, envelope opener, and pen/card/envelope holder.

Material: Naturally Harvested Mahogany and Sonokeling Wood
Boxed Dimensions: 6.75 x 5.5 x 2 inches

Side by Side Blackboard

I’d say this blackboard is a good buy not only for the spare & simple design, but also for where your dollars will go.

Challenging the idea that a message board needs to be hidden behind a door, this Blackboard, made by Side by Side, has a quiet presence that is suitable for any kitchen, office or kid’s room. In a size that’s specifically made for residential and small spaces, this functional design is frameless, which leaves a lot of space to write, and makes erasing easier. Based in Germany, Side by Side is a nonprofit mentoring program that matches a craftsperson with a mentally or physically disabled apprentice to create a team that brings a designer’s work to fruition. These workshops are subsidized by various welfare organizations in Germany, so that all profits can go directly to the people handcrafting these products. Side by Side is successfully fulfilling two missions: To create modern, useful objects and to bring a social environment and professionalism to a wider portion of the community.
