We have absolutely not idea why, but, we're huge fans of everything having its own place. We're especially crazy about it in our home office. We've spent good money on containers, organizers and such to ensure that our desk and bookshelves remain clutter free! We swear by this method &mdash we're much more productive when we don't have a bunch of stuff all over the place.
Taking things one step further, we can't express how much we love organizers that have compartments built in. These handy organizers were made for borderline OCD people like us, who, think it's so cute and great that every last paper clip, iPod cord and USB stick have its very own place to rest.
The latest organizer we've fallen in love with is the Utensilo Wall Organizer. It's a wall mounted organizer tool that is not only functional, but stylish as well. Originally designed in the 1960s by German-born Dorothee Becker, the organizer was a huge hit until production was stopped in 1974 due to the oil crisis that scared everyone into thinking plastic was bad.
Fast forward to 2002, and the production is up and running again thanks to the Vitra Design Museum. The Utensilo Wall Organizer comes in white, black and red and is made from ABS Plastic with metal hooks.
What we love about this blast from the past is that it was initially designed for staplers, paper clips, notes and files &mdash but today it can be used for so much more. Digital cameras, iPads, netbooks as well as the items the organizer was originally designed for.
The Utensilo Wall Organizer is being sold for $422 through Nova68, a little pricey, but well worth the history.
