Deskape’s minimal desk organizers pair perfectly with your anodized-aluminum tech

Little did Jobs know how much a simple material choice for a smartphone would spawn an entire era of metallurgy, perhaps comparable to the Bronze Age. Aluminum, the most abundant metal on Earth, can be found practically everywhere. It’s used in furniture, in construction, in food-packaging, and in consumer electronics, arguably by the tonne. Deskape’s hope is to seamlessly complement the use of aluminum in consumer electronics, by creating a series of incredibly classy and minimalist desk organizers, designed to uplift the workspace, and unite it in the appreciation of Aluminum.

Designed as a set (but also available individually exclusively for Kickstarter backers), the Deskape series comprises a cable organizer, pen-stand, card-holder, and a paperweight tray. Designed with a minimal aesthetic, featuring simple cross-sections that make the products look like they’ve been extruded in their shape, each product serves two purposes. One, the purpose given to it, i.e., being a pen-stand, or organizing your charging cables and wires, and Two, matching the metallic appeal of your workspace, with your laptop, external keyboard, trackpad, etc. Deskape’s products are all about bringing both functionality and elegance to your work-area, with the added flair of being so exquisite looking that people are sure to take a second and third look… quite like the way Jobs had anticipated people would react looking at his aluminum-made, sleek, perfection-chasing Apple products!

Re:ease doesn’t organize your desk. It redesigns it.

Here’s my desk scenario. I have a pencil holder from Amazon, a stapler from Maped, a hole-punch from Kangaro, and an off-brand planter with a mini succulent in it. It’s a collection of products I love individually, but combine them together and they end up making my workspace look like there’s a whole lot going on. That’s where the problem lies. Desk items aren’t always designed to be a part of a family. They’re just made to be good products that look wonderful on shelves, and perform well enough for you to not have any complaints… and often become a decorative element in your overhead #workspace photo on Instagram.

Marc Stueber recognized that this mild annoyance wasn’t just visual. It ended up reflecting his mindset and affecting his productivity. The stationery on his desk, even though hardly used in a paper-and-pen-less world, were necessary at some times, and a hindrance at others. This led him to develop a more concise, well-organized family of products that would sit on his work-desk. Each product followed a similar design language, and looked good too. Together, these products would form an organized block on the workspace, clearing it of all the clutter, and making you feel much more positive and productive.

Re:ease channels a minimal Scandinavian/Nordic design, with its use of wood and white, and of geometric shapes that come together perfectly. A modular block of all your office necessities, the Re:ease features hole-punch, sharpener, stapler, tape-dispenser, planter, a charging dock for your smartphone, and a rather well-organized pen-stand that holds pens, pencils, highlighters, and notes, all in individual slots. All these elements look great individually, but more importantly, come together on the same workspace to create a clean, modular unit that gives you all the functionality you need without the visual clutter. Moreover, each unit even boasts of a magnetic base that lets them snap together to form arrangements that suit your needs, and ultimately the clean, organized workspace that YOU want to build.

Jigsaw CatchAll Docking Station is the Perfect Place to Keep All Your Bedside Stuff

If you’re like me, you’ve got all kinds of crap sitting on your bedside table – a phone, watch, charging cables, and other miscellaneous stuff. I always find myself reaching over in the middle of the night to check the time on my phone or watch too, and there’s usually a bunch of fumbling around in the dark. What I need is a nice way to organize all of that stuff.

Look no further than Jigsaw Furnishing’s CatchAll bedside docks. Each of their docks is made from two pieces of custom cut, high quality plywood that interlock, and provides places to dock your phone, hang your watch, hold a wallet, keys, jewelry, spare change, and a pen. I’m sure you could figure out other uses for it as well.

If you’ve got an Apple Watch, they make a special version with a cutout for its magnetic charging cable too. I definitely need that one.

Best of all, Jigsaw’s docks are reasonably priced, going for just $29.99 each. You can find them for sale over on their Etsy shop now.

Always Have a Place to Charge up with this 10-Port USB Charger

Do you have lots of phones, tablets, and other rechargeable gadgets in the house or at the office? Here’s the solution to all of your charging problems.

Unitek’s 10-port charging station can juice up two handfuls of USB-powered devices at once – even tablets and larger smartphones. Its 10 ports can provide 5 volts at up to 2.4-amps each. To accommodate all of your devices and keep them neatly organized, it comes with dividers, which can be adjusted based on the size and number of gadgets you have.

It’s currently on sale for just $39.99(USD) over at Amazon, and if you want to keep things super tidy, you’ll want to add on some short cables, since those aren’t included. You can find a 5-pack of stubby MicroUSB cords for $7.99, and a 6-pack of short Lightning cables for $12.99.

This Vintage Leica Camera Is Not What It Seems

If you were to buy a vintage Leica M3 rangefinder camera, you could expect to pay at least $600 (USD) on eBay for a decent one. They aren’t cheap. But if all you want is to display it on a shelf as room decor, you don’t have to pay that much. This Leica M3 replica looks like the real thing from a distance, and it will only cost you $40.

leica_2

And this version is much more versatile than the real thing. It may not take pictures, but just take off the lid, and you can use it as a desk caddy to store pens and other office supplies, put candy inside, whatever you want. They’ll even hold your old rolls of 35mm film.

leica_m3_replica_tin_2

Leica Rumors only has a limited supply of these, so you’d better hurry if you want one.

3 Peas in a Charge

arrangement_pea_01

As useful as multi-tap power extensions might be, they will inevitably leave your wires a mess and your aesthetic a total wreck! The Arrangement PEA offers one simple solution for tidying up cables directly on the unit.

While the base is made from hard plastic, the cap covers are made with a malleable silicon material that can be easily flipped and inverted. To use the Arrangement PEA, simply flip the cover upwards to expose a spool – then, wind the wire around the spool before flipping the cover back into its original state. The wires will be hidden and kept clear of the surrounding area!

Arrangement PEA is a 2015 Red Dot Award winner.

Make Your Cables Stay Put

I’m sitting here staring at my messy iPhone charging cable with disdain as we speak! There simply hasn’t been a solution for cleaning up the cable that I find aesthetically appealing… until now! Unlike clunky stick-on or screw-on cable management clips, Stay is a minimalistic solution that uses magnets to hold the cord in place. Simply place the metal object on your desk top or any other surface for a stylish way to keep your cord under control! DO WANT.
