In 2020 our lives changed completely, the COVID-19 pandemic transformed what was considered the ‘norm’, and created new norms that molded the way we lived.
One of these new norms is the work from home culture, and it has continued well into 2022. We’ve been working from our homes for almost a year now, and although we have adapted to it, it can be quite a bore at times.

2. The HMM Scissors
Our workspaces are often littered with two kinds of things. On the one hand, you have tools designed to accomplish a task. On the other hand, you have decorative items designed to please the senses.
Of course, there are now stationary and desk tools that are designed to hit two birds with one stone, especially those that embrace minimalist aesthetics that fit well in almost any situation.
These scissors from popular brand HMM are designed to bridge those two worlds together, offering a tool that not only creates a sense of wonder but also inspires confidence in every snip.
Just as with the tools mentioned above, scissors often come in two classes. One type is clearly designed for cutting away at your problems, while another type almost looks too pretty to be used.
The HMM Scissors is definitely not the latter, with an aesthetic that clearly exudes its power. The wide and flat blades are almost reminiscent of industrial tools, and its black Japanese steel body gives off an aura of strength and durability.
How to use them.
- Flip the scissors and hold it by the blades, and you instantly have a box cutter.
- A custom-made magnet lets the scissors stand upright with its sharp tip safely hidden inside the base.

One wrong move and those stacks of paper are going down along with the cups you filled with paperclips and thumb stacks. Before you know it, there’s hardly room to get any work done.
Desk organizers help take care of the clutter and even add a bit of personality to your workspace. Furniture designer Deniz Aktay designed his own modular desk organizer called Nick that’s carved from wood for a simple and functional workspace accessory.

Carving out the product’s grooves, Aktay created a built-in rail system that additional wooden modules can slide onto to form a multi-level organizer.

Desk organizers are a dime a dozen, but they themselves can actually be a source of headaches when they take over your workspace.
No one can perfectly predict how much stuff we will accumulate over the years, and traditional organizers aren’t designed to grow with you and your clutter.
You can buy more of them, in different designs, but there’s a limit to how much room you have on the table. In contrast, Cyl uses the age-old stacking trick to free up horizontal space by utilizing often unused vertical space.
This desk organizer concept does not discriminate or put limits on what you can put inside. More importantly, you can easily see what’s inside and quickly get them without having to unstack the ones above.
In theory, you can stack the containers as high as you can, presuming gravity doesn’t cause them to topple over. The Organizers come in different sizes. But this couldn’t be the most space-efficient design for your desk.
