We're sensing a huge trend in tech just on the horizon. People are still buying sleek aluminum and glass devices (by the 4 millions!), but they're wrapping them up in a veneer of warm wood. Surprisingly Moo, famous for printing promo cards, is ahead of the trend on this one. They just announced a line of affordable flat-pack wood-veneer desk accessories.We were previously digging on Deskology's matte aluminum DESKSET accessories for the way they perfectly mimic the architecture of an Apple computer. We still love it, for anyone who prefers their tech bare, slim and pure, but at $189, it's a tough sell.
And so, if you find yourself reaching for a trendy wood veneer case for your iPad in the coming weeks, we'd like to recommend a desk set that's a little more affordable.
Paper & printing web service Moo has an excellent eye for design that's jumping out of your desk drawer and on to the desk top. They're now selling a line of flat-pack wood-veneer desk accessories from Hong Kong design team V-15.
The three products—a tape dispenser, desk organizer and scissors holder—share three things in common: They're affordable ($9.99-$14.99), they're green (flat packed for reduced environmental impact during transit and made from renewable wood sources) and they're going to be fun to put together at your desk Monday morning.
