Stationary is a natural must have wherever you work, whether it be at the office or at home. And while many activities are carried out on a computer and online, there is a good level of satisfaction in knowing that you have essential pieces of kit ready to hand. And when they are as beautifully designed as these items, it makes all the difference. Take this highly original desk tidy from Essey for example. Offering a quirky take on the pen and stationary holder, the Pen Pen is made from high-density polyethylene and looks like a crumpled piece of paper. Sure to bring a surprising look to a work or study desk, the desk tidy is able to keep all your pens, pencils, rulers and rubbers happily safe in style.
