Oak Pen and Pencil Case
The Full Desk versus Clean Desk factions.
When it comes to the desk debate, the world is divided between the ’full desk’ and ’clean desk’ factions. The former is at home with a surface cluttered with a myriad of useful and obscure objects, while the latter will settle for nothing less than a Zen-like void. Expert opinion favours clearly the clean deskers so that, for purposes of concentration and order, the few objects on the desk top should be well organized and readily accessible. And to garb this fact of life with a mantle of scientific respectability, it’s sold as a "Clean Desk Policy". But the purported "New Conciseness" is nothing more than the well-known saying of designers and architects: Less is more. A saying that is especially true in a work environment.
Objects designed with the combination in mind.
These desktop utensils are designed accordingly. They’re simple pencil holders and trays made of oiled oak and maple in Steinhöring in Bavaria. They are coordinated so that they can be combined. The smaller of the two pencil holders was originally developed to display writing implements in the stationery shops. After the customers kept asking about it, we decided to have one built according to our specifications. The result is a perfect example of "less is more": The small pencil holder has room for one favoured, most often used writing implement. The larger one stores a selection. All trays are furnished with four little plastic feet to protect the desktop surface.
