Stylish desk organizers to create a more efficient desk space for you


In 2020, our lives have completely changed, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed what was considered ‘the norm’, creating new standards that have shaped the way we live. One of these new standards is the work-from-home culture, and it ran until 2022. We’ve been working from our homes for nearly a year now, and although we’ve adapted to it, it can get boring at times. I, for example, am always looking for options to make my work-from-home routine more efficient and effective. And I found that adding a desk organizer to my desk setup can greatly increase my productivity! The organizer can transform your desk from an absolute clutter into a clean and tidy space that fundamentally boosts your productivity. From a small desk organizer that comes with a keyless mechanism to turn the lights on and off to a square organizer system that can adapt to different environments – here’s a collection of interesting, highly effective and productivity-enhancing desk organizers that promise to be the best work from home investment for 2022!

1. Nick


When our office tools aren’t organized, our offices look less like workspaces and more like minefields. One wrong move and those piles of paper go down with the cups you filled with paper clips and paper clips. Before you know it, there’s hardly any room to get any work done. Desk organizers help take care of clutter and add a bit of personality to your workspace. Furniture designer Deniz Aktay created his own modular desk organizer Nick Carved out of wood for simple and functional workspace accessories.

Why is it noteworthy?

Nick finds his organizational chart through a system of carved slots that provide storage spaces for our stationery. By carving product grooves, Aktay created a compact rail system that additional wooden units could slide onto to form a multi-level organizer. With its modular design, the components that come with the Nick have different sizes for users to configure the overall structure to suit their organizational needs.

what we like

  • Creates individual slots just the right size for different stationery items such as writing instruments and short erasers

what we hate

  • It is very simple from an aesthetic point of view

2. Disco

It’s almost hard to see Desco as an organizer, given how visually it looks disorganized on its own. It uses different shapes that seem to be thrown together at random, as well as lines that cut into each other at odd angles.

Why is it noteworthy?

Unlike traditional desk organizers, you almost have to stop and think about which items go where, despite its seemingly random design, every nook and cranny in a Desco actually serves a specific purpose. The large acrylic circle in the middle, for example, has slots designed to hold notebooks, while the space that runs through the tube shape can hold pens and even rolls of paper. The slanted foot holds room for a few sheets of paper, while the acrylic surface of one of the wooden boxes can be used as a small wall for sticky notes. There’s also plenty of room for all kinds of gadgets and gadgets, including a drawer for your phone, earbuds, or smartwatch. There is also a surface that can be used to keep your favorite mug close at hand.

what we like

  • Despite the mixing of its forms, Desco still sticks to minimalism as far as the surfaces themselves go
  • Clear acrylic gives the impression that it is floating in the air

3. desk tidy



Award-winning industrial designer, Johan Lansard, has once again given us a design to add to our “Main Need!” existing. Desk Tidy is a stylish desk lamp and organizer (also called desk tidy) for miscellaneous items that usually cause clutter. The lighting concept is made of shaped wood, anodized aluminum, and a diffusion tube.

Why is it noteworthy?

Both the lamp and the desk are tidy, the light turns on when the light box is placed vertically and turns off horizontally – simple, elegant and effective. The way to turn the lamp on and off is very intuitive, and the paperclip-inspired shape makes it more convenient for your desk. CMF is minimal and durable, and the style will work in any office or office without being distracting.

what we like

  • This concept makes it possible to respond to different types of objects

what we hate

4. 2ORDE



2ORDE is designed to create an environment that gives a sense of unification to the business office and, with its versatile approach, makes finding office supplies a breeze.

Why is it noteworthy?

After a series of brainstorming sessions, mockups, and feedback – designers Junseo Oh, Eojin Roh and Minjeong Kim arrived at a magnetic board with a matte finish. Completely stable on its wide base, 2ORDE is more than just a board. Supplied with a set of colorful sticky notes. It magnetically attaches to one part of the board, leaving the other part for you to outline your tasks with chalk and then stick a functional clock on it to swing by the schedule that fits your time.

what we like

  • The sticky notes are erasable. The designers claim that no matter what pen you use, you can rub it in and move on without a doubt
  • The included pen holder also sticks to the magnetic board and lets you focus on your pen collection

what we hate

5. Architecture



Deskitecture is a collection of architecture-inspired desktops that use different structural forms to create mini cityscapes on your desk.

Why is it noteworthy?

Deskitecture is made up of several different devices, and it’s built from different building materials as well. Using basic architecture as the blueprint for each piece, Kim divided his desktop hardware line into four categories: concrete, wood, brick, and steel. Hardware made of concrete are usually those that keep office items in place, such as writing instruments, books, and pieces of paper.

what we like

  • Unique pieces inspired by architecture
  • Achieves a unified balance between aesthetics and functionality

what we hate

6. cylinder



Desk organizers are a dime a dozen, but they themselves can actually be a headache when they take over your workspace. No one can perfectly predict how much we’ll see over the years, and traditional organizers aren’t designed to grow with you and your clutter. You can buy more of them, even in different designs, but there is a limit to how much space you have at the table. In contrast, Cyl uses the old stacking trick to free up horizontal space by making use of an often unused vertical space.

Why is it noteworthy?

This desk organizer concept does not characterize or place restrictions on what you can put inside. Most importantly, you can easily see what’s inside and get it quickly without having to unpack the above items. In theory, you could stack the containers as high as possible, assuming gravity doesn’t cause them to fall.

what we like

  • You can easily see what’s inside and get it quickly without having to unpack the items above
  • Organizers come in different sizes

what we hate

  • Not the most space-saving design for your desk

7. MagOrg



Keeping our offices organized is a full-time job just like our real jobs, and not all offices are designed to help organize the clutter we live in. Sure, many drawers have drawers, but they keep things out of sight and out of mind. Office organizers group things together but can sometimes be as disorganized as the stationery they put together. MagOrg solves this problem of clutter with a system that lets you keep all these essential business tools close at hand while giving each one a home. You can also mix and match the pieces so you can reduce their size as necessary.

Why is it noteworthy?

MagOrg uses magnets to create a modular and customizable organization system where you can decide how big or small you want. There are three large panels that you can combine in different ways, and each has its own unique set of features that make it special. One, for example, has flexible straps similar to a grid organizer that let you squeeze into notebooks, markers, and more. The other has built-in wireless charging, so you can rest your phone while you work, confident that it won’t die on you anytime soon.

what we like

  • Features a standard pen/pencil holder
  • Provides a clutter-free workspace

what we hate

  • There are similar designs on the market

8. Quick Access Organizer



Oftentimes, the reason we lose keys, glasses, or even wallets, is because we misplace them just by placing them anywhere when we take them out of our pockets. We develop this bad habit because sometimes it takes a lot of work to actually drop them into proper storage, like a desk or shelf organiser, in part because the storage box itself doesn’t make it easy to use. Having to think about the item that can be a mental burden when it has to be done multiple times a day, and the seconds you lose in opening and closing most chests builds up over time.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Quick Access Organizer tries to make it as easy as possible for you to organize your everyday carry gear. The lid has sections that can fit only some types of objects. This makes it easy to know what to put there, so you don’t have to waste precious time making that decision every time. Soon, it’ll be normal for you to put your glasses, AirPods case, or keys in those sections, so they don’t end up getting lost in an unknown area at all.

repeatedly.

what we like

  • The true special talent of the chest is how quickly and effortlessly this lid rotates, revealing the spacious cave inside
  • This storage box is minimalist beauty for contrasting and complementing items

what we hate

9. Aloe vera



Inspired by the unlimited growing heights of succulents, Subin Song collaborated with Fountain Studio to design Cacty, a modular desk organizer that can expand and grow to unlimited heights.

Why is it noteworthy?

Each Cacty unit can be linked together with slots and tabs stacking that create an endless array of options for organization. Users can store larger items such as staplers and tape dispensers in the base unit Cacty, the most central piece of the stacking system, which comes with four slots for attaching additional unit tabs. Other units that come with Cacty suit different organizational needs. For example, a taller unit could hold long writing instruments such as pens and pencils, along with rulers and scissors. Then, the shorter units can hold office supplies like glue sticks, tie clips, and safety pins.

what we like

  • Cacty’s main attraction is the infinite combinations that can be applied when building the modular system
  • Cacty can be created in any shape that best suits your desktop

what we hate

10. SQUARE Regulator

SQUARE Organizer single object
Work or study offices have to be organised, but we know that organization doesn’t come naturally to many people. SQUARE Organizer is a new solution designed by product designer Lo Kwun Hon. The box comes with a straightforward design – multiple slots on one side and a recessed drawer on the other.

Why is it noteworthy?

The square universal organizer is made of resin material. It is called a square because of the simple shape, which can be combined with another piece to make a larger or longer version. You can put square trays side by side to hold pens, scissors, and other knick knacks.

what we like

  • You can use multiple square trays at one time and arrange them according to your own design
  • Square Organizer can also be considered modular as you can use more than one piece to create a more comprehensive drawer system
