I must say that my work desk isn’t as organized as I would want it to be. In fact, sometimes the disturbing clutter tends to affect my productivity and hamper my creativity. And I’m pretty sure everyone’s been on this boat at some point or the other. Ukrainian product designer Julia Kononenko created the ‘Eco Pot’, an intriguing little product that organizes your desk and adds a pop of green to it! The multipurpose desk accessory is basically a flower pot with an integrated pen holder.
Divided into two sections, the smaller square-shaped section has been reserved to store your pens and pencils. Whereas the elevated larger section functions as a planter. Add a succulent or two and watch your desk bloom! Crafted from elmwood, Eco Pot is also lined with glass vessels, to ensure that neither the water nor soil damage the wood structure. The glass cover also helps to keep your desk dust-free even if the plants haven’t been planted. Block-like in nature, you can place a couple of Eco Pots together to create a miniature garden, welcoming a wave of nature into your workspace. And that bit of perfectly maintained green patch is all you need to help you cut away all the workplace clutter and give you a moment of zen as well as satisfaction when things get hectic at the office.
The plant potter aka desktop organizer comes in two versions, with different diameters for the holes of the pen/pencil holders. So you can choose the size that fits the needs of your stationery. Having this touch of green in an otherwise industrial and claustrophobic space such as our work desk will only help to clear our minds and charge up our productivity!
