Not surprising, seeing as it was designed by a trained sculptor and made by hand. The rounded cylindrical drum has a rubber base for easy traction, and the utilitarian serrated brass arm ensures a clean break in the tape every time. Although it was manufactured in the English countryside, it still fits standard Scotch tape, and includes a 5 year warranty.
“It seems that perfection is attained, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away”- Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

Fused together by ancient lava streams in the mountains of Brazil, these bookends combine agate, amethyst and crystal in layers of luminous color. Agate is a worthy custodian of your book collection- it is regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence, and like the books it contains, a tonic to your screen-weary eyes. Artisans hand cut and polish each piece by hand, leaving the stony edge untouched, so no two are alike. Sold in pairs, these bookends are weighty enough to handle even the most imposing hardcovers.
The geometric shape of this classic gel pen allows both left and right handed writers to use this instrument with ease.

Desk trays are a perfect way to compartmentalize your desk and corral all your tools into one place- we use it to unite our pen cup, stapler and photo frames.

In space, nobody can hear you write. And if it weren’t for the Fisher pen, nobody in space would be writing at all. NASA commissioned Paul Fisher to create a pen that could write at any angle in any condition, using an ingenious combination of pressurized nitrogen and semisolid ink that liquefies as you write. If, like us, you are not a frequent space traveler, this pen has many earthly applications- the ink never runs dry when you need to take down a phone number, never leaks when you are taking notes on a plane, and never falters if you are writing while reclining. Its sturdy metallic feel and stylish matte finish make it a joy to use, too.

The notebook is refillable, saving you money and space in the landfill.

We’ve always loved the way that classic French pens sit heavy in the hand- the pleasant heft acts as a visceral reminder to be deliberate with the words we write.

"When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute — and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity." - Einstein The feeling of time depends so much on you place you’re in and your state of mind, and this hourglass gives us a visceral reminder of this truth. We’re amazed at how quickly its white grains slip through its fulcrum on some days, while on others they seem to slouch reluctantly through, even though it is always 45 minutes that has passed. Studies have shown that to be the optimal frequency at which we should take breaks from focused work, and there couldn’t be more beautiful way to remind yourself to do so.
As true to form as it gets. Designed for daily use, this classic tool is crafted of brassy-hued stainless steel with a matte finish. Grips lined in black plastic provide traction, comfort, and contrast.

Before the prosaic looping paper clip we all recognize became standard, the turn of the century saw a flowering of imaginative designs. This Japanese maker has resurrected some of the earliest patents, including this Triangle design, which was invented in 1903 by the Weis Binder Company. As well as being more playful than the standard clip, this design’s solid brass construction holds paper firmly without creasing or damaging. 10 clips per box.
With a clean, light grey finish, this two level tray is both a throwback to workspaces of the 1950's, and a brilliant solution for sorting files, stowing magazines or corralling unruly paper piles.

With a design straight from a vintage factory floor, it’s a durable but understated resting place for your discarded items.
