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.

The Darter Pen can help you with a stitch in time

You’ve probably heard of the phrase “ripped a hole in my pocket”? It implies that something is so expensive that it ripped through the pocket fabric to take all your money. Literal or metaphorical, the Darter Pen is neither. A compact, reasonably priced ballpoint pen, the Darter is the size of an AA battery, and aside from packing a Cross Matrix ballpoint refill for writing, the Darter even houses an entire sewing kit that packs everything you need for a stitch in time.

An unusual looking and unusually handy piece of EDC, the Darter pen comes entirely machined from aluminum and brass. The outer body sits at a remarkable 58mm in height (that’s the same size as an AA battery), and houses inside it a Cross Matrix ballpoint refill. Around the refill also sits the intricately machined sewing kit which cleverly houses 4 needles, a bobbin, 2 spools of thread, and even space for a spare button for good measure.

Available in gold and silver finishes (brought about by the use of brass and aluminum), the Darter pens are compact enough to fit in your palm or even on your keychain. The Cross Matrix ballpoint refill ensures the Darter works spectacularly as a writing instrument, while although the sewing module won’t be something you use often, it’ll be a practical lifesaver when you do end up needing it to stitch the hole in your pockets from your other extravagant purchases!

These M-Marker’s Team Up to Help You

magnetic_marker_layout

There are designs that blow you away with their sheer innovativeness, while there are some that make you smack yourself on the head with the simplicity of its idea and execution. Simple though these ideas are, it remains a powerful advocate of the effectiveness of a solution not being dependent on complex ideas. Featured today, the M-Marker falls in the latter category.

In the bulk of stationary that designers carry around, markers occupy a huge chunk of it. Let’s not add the cumbersome nature of carrying around individual markers and the sheer horror of losing the favorite one from the set! The Red Dot award-winning M-Marker features a magnetic marker packaging that holds together the markers when not in use. Each uniquely shaped quadrant marker body ensure a cluster of 4 markers can fit together in a round arrangement, with you choosing the marker you need to carry around and create your own cluster. You can create your own color sequence and cluster it to try out effective compositions, grouping and classifying them as you wish. Space saving as is fun, this solution is sure to reduce the bulk we carry around. Also, just stick and save together the current sketch-in-progress cluster so no hunting for the markers used the next time you need it. All the utilities aside, I can’t help imagine the fun of infinitely playing and arranging these markers to my obsessive-compulsive stationary-freak blessed heart’s content!

This notebook was designed for crowded workspaces!

sidekick_notebook_1

Are you even a designer if you don’t constantly fight the compulsive need to buy any pretty looking stationery you see, only to give in after a few moments? That got real, didn’t it? Well, I’m fighting the compulsive need to buy myself the Sidekick notebook, designed by the guys at Triangle Notebook.

The Sidekick is quirky, but has logic to it. An A5 notebook looks small on your desk, but open it and it doubles in size, becoming an A4, and occupying precious real estate on your desk. The Sidekick has no such problem. Its unusual shape and diagonal spine allows it to open into an ‘L’ shaped notebook that can easily sit at the corner of your keyboard, or your mousepad, or even tablet. The notebook won’t serve well for sketching, but makes a good note-taking pad, offering both landscape and portrait writing areas. Take notes, make doodles, or probably even sketch on it if you can, the Sidekick is that one notebook you won’t buy and put away only because you’ll love keeping it on your table to occasionally take notes, and to perpetually show off. Oh what the hell, I’m buying myself one…

The Ever-lasting Pen!

The ManualPen pairs simplistic design with precision engineering, this results in a pen that creates a truly unique writing experience. By being machined out of a single piece of metal with exceptional levels of precision, it has allowed ManualPen to compose of just two parts, the solid metal body and rechargeable cartridge.

This led to the need for a unique fixing mechanism; a slightly bent clip securely holds the cartridge in place to eliminate any unwanted movement, whilst ensuring it can still be slid with just a satisfying movement of a fingertip! And with the introduction of a CNC machined bore, a precise and flush fitment of the cartridge has been achieved. This isn’t just any ordinary cartridge either… the pressurized Fisher Space cartridge not only carries a complimenting metal body, but also ensure that ManualPen will write in any condition you throw at it; from extreme temperatures through to zero gravity… ManualPen has you covered!

This hardwearing, long-lasting pen is sure to be a valued addition to your collection… as well as making for an excellent conversation starter!

ManualPen has no separate parts inside that could ever break- just the solid metal body and rechargeable cartridge.

They have designed a unique cartridge fixing mechanism that holds it securely in the pen while allowing you to easily slide the cartridge in and out.

unibody_manualpen_05

In closed position the cartridge is fully hidden inside the pen.

unibody_manualpen_02

The slightly bent clip puts a light pressure on the cartridge preventing it from sliding out of the pen’s body. At the same time, it is super easy to slide the cartridge with your fingertip.

unibody_manualpen_03

The inside bore is machined with the highest precision so that there are no unnecessary movements between body and cartridge. The tip stays still ensuring the best writing experience.

The milled groove on the side edge allows to conveniently slide out the cartridge with your thumb, at the same it prevents the pen from rolling on flat surfaces.

unibody_manualpen_04

For the ManualPen cartridge is just as important as the casing because it serves as a part of the pen’s opening mechanism. The Fisher Space cartridge is the perfect fit because of its durable metallic body and universal writing qualities.

Swipe Right to open your Holiday Gifts!

Our generation is so used to swiping at things that it only seems natural that something like the Nimble Cutter would exist! Cleverly named, the Nimble is a thimble that sits on your finger, but instead of preventing needle pricks, this little bad-boy comes with a blade that’s capable of being the best cutter you’ll ever own. Convenient in its design, the Nimble’s silicone cap shape allows it to comfortably rest on any finger. A tiny blade on the tip lets you simply slide across surfaces you want to cut, be it paper, tape, clingfilm, etc. The blade’s small enough to slice through packaging, but too small to actually cut skin, which means the most the Nimble will do is poke you a tiny bit.

Perfect for the upcoming festive season (what with all the unboxing you’ll have to do), the Nimble takes a natural gesture, something we pretty much do all day on our touchscreens, and converts it into something useful, so you can ditch those harmful boxcutters and deadly knives!

Do you ever wonder what paper clips looked like 150 years ago?

clip_art_1

If you do wonder what paper clips looked like in eras long gone by, Clip Art (clever wordplay alert?) is a wonderful history lesson in paper clip design. The series features ten different paper clips from 1860 to 1934, recreated from ancient patent records. While we’re pretty happy now in 2018 with the stapler, or the default paper clip (Clippy from Microsoft Office, if one remembers it), the Clip Art is a series worth collecting and admiring, especially for the way it captures how subtly different paper clips looked during the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods (and possibly even how visual styles could be partially dictated by industrial production techniques). The Clip Art also comes with a Clip Chart, a paperback book that ‘charts’ the journey and the evolution of the humble paper clip that could easily be one of the most significantly important inventions in the age of the office.

Be careful with these scissors!

Playful as ever, Qualy’s Cactus Scissors give the stationery tool a bit of character. Designed to look like a potted cactus, the scissors come nested in a cactus-shaped body (sans the spikes, of course) that sheathes the blades. Pull it out and you’ve got yourself a regular, working scissor that you can use either in the kitchen, at your workplace, or just for hobby-work. The cactus plant even comes with its own pot that serves as a storage area for paper clips, stapler pins, thumbtacks, or other bits and bobs, making it an evergreen little piece of greenery for your desk!

Beetlejuice Note Card Set: For the Ghost Host with the Most

Think about classic ’80s flicks and Bettlejuice certainly comes to mind. If you are a Tim Burton fan, and the sort of host who needs note cards to thank people for coming to your ghoulish shindigs, this is the ticket.

The set comes packaged in a box that looks just like the Handbook for the Recently Deceased. Inside the book box, you will find 20 note cards, 20 envelopes, and 20 sticker seals. The set also includes a 192-page ruled journal with a coiled sandworm on the front.

The note cards have five different sayings on them, including “Never trust the living,” “I’m the ghost with the most, babe,” “It’s SHOWTIME!”, “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!”, and “Go ahead, make my millennium.”

Get the Beetlejuice note card set at ThinkGeek for $24.99. If the idea seems familiar, that’s because they’re very similar to the Edgar Allen Poe note card set that we talked about not long ago.

Stickies on a Roll!

moment_01

What good is a sticky note without a pen? With the Moment Pen, you never have to ask that question. The two-in-one design combines both into one handy unit that’s perfect for leaving notes, reminders, and lists where you need. The body of the pen itself is actually a roll of sticky notes with adhesive backing that can be refilled when you run out. Simply grab a corner, peel off the paper, write your note, and stick! Compact and convenient, it’s perfect for carrying around in your bag, backpack, or purse.
