Developed by Korean studio WV Design, the Holder Series is designed to improve the ease of management and organization, with the ultimate focus to create ease of access for all desk objects: Whether it is a pen or important documents, the Holder Series aims to reduce the trouble of finding, sorting and tidying. Combining powder-coated steel plates, natural plywood and aluminum plates, the design achieves an interesting balance both in materials and shape. I would most definitely benefit from this system!

Montreal-based furniture designer, Mitz Takahashi, created a pencil stand named “Writer’s Block”. The stand is handmade from recycled/offcuts wood in Montreal – Canada. Takahaski uses a combination of pine, walnut, mahogany and birch. Beautiful woods finished with Danish oil and water-based varethane. Each stand is a unique piece. The collection of Takahashi with mid-century feel ranges from lightning to furniture and desk accessory.
Korean product designer Giha Woo is the creator of the Twisted Pencil. The design is a vase comprising of pencils, which form an outline of its shape, albeit appearing as one. The design also conveys aesthetic value with a nuance of amusement by representing the relationship between the pencil structure and utensils stored within it. Available in a range of colours including black, white and blue, Twisted Pencil offers a certain minimal feel in that it is merely a frame, but because of the thickness of the pencils used, that is all it needs to be. Woo explains: In comparison with general products, Twisted Pencil isn’t a vase that can contain a lot more pencils, but it includes new aesthetics and morphological consideration about things. A fun desk accessory, not to be taken too seriously.
This ceramic serie of five ornaments is from Dick van Hoff which he has made is collaboration with Royal Tichelaar Makkum in the Netherlands. He decided to make some practical desk products instead of traditional living room or dinner table products. The outcome was the series Work: two table lamps, a clock, a vase and a pen-tray. The pieces are made in a functional blend of wood and ceramics. Without the wooden structures the products would actually be highly unpractical.
