I am very particular when it comes to choosing desk accessories. If I’m going to use this product every day, it needs to fit seamlessly into my working life. It can’t be too large or have oddly shaped compartments. The best desk organizer is one that makes your life easier without you noticing. You can search through multiple stores until you find the perfect fit or, with this constructor-organizer, you can build your own.
One of its most unique features is the fact that the trays and different compartments don’t have an assigned purpose. This product doesn’t have a specific pencil holder or key ring hook. The nooks, ridges, and holders can fit a wide variety of small supplies; it’s up to you to decide how to use them. Another unusual feature of this product is that it can be oriented vertically as well as horizontally, making the possibilities seem almost limitless.
This freedom might seem overwhelming and a bit intimidating, but I think the wooden aesthetic helps make the product more accessible. It reminds me of a mix between Jenga blocks and legos, a building toy that encourages me to play around with the organizer until I settle on the perfect shape. The neutral coloring also allows the product to blend into a variety of settings. I could imagine it complementing the most colorful office cubicle or matching a wood-shop or other construction space. I’m truly impressed by this product’s versatility, both in terms of function and appearance.
