Though many don’t mind a cluttered work area, there are a few who can’t resume working unless their desk resembles the pinnacle of orderliness. The Re:ease desk organizer was made for these select neat freaks.
Created by product designer Marc Stüber and engineer Laurent Hartmann, this modular desk organizer is made up of 6 compact modules, each with their own unique features, and contains everything you need in a workspace environment so you can stop procrastinating and actually get some work done.
You have your standard hole puncher, pen and note holder, stapler, pencil sharpener, and tape dispenser — but Re:ease also has some unique modules which come in the form of a 21st century-inspired charging station and even a plant pot.
Possibly the coolest feature of the Re:ease is how the modules can be attached and arranged exactly how you want them to be: hidden on the base of each are magnets for fully-customizable modular solutions. Depending on how many or how few of the modules you need, you can adjust the Re:ease to fit your workstation exactly as you need it — no more, no less.
Developed over two years, Re:ease transitioned from being one “ultimate” office tool holder into a modular, customizable organizer. Initial prototypes of the modules were 3D printed using a homemade printer and PLA material before moving onto more dimensionally accurate finished units courtesy of an HP Multi Jet 3D printer.
The bases of the finished modules are made of either ash wood or concrete. While the wood bases were shaped using a CNC milling machine, the concrete bases were made by adding tiny plastic grids in-between the concrete to keep them stable while making them as thin as 0.4 inches thick.
Re:ease is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter with nearly $10K funded out of its $16,914 goal and three weeks left to go. If you like procrastinating but hate not getting any work done, you should definitely check out this modular organizer’s Kickstarter page (once you fix your cluttered desk, of course).
