Desk Accessories
Whether a pen, pair of scissors, or tape dispenser, every desktop tool must adequately provide solid function while displaying innovative design.

From Maison Martin Margiela's whimsical feather pen and magnifying glass which showcase unexpended humor and wit to Jasper Morrison's signature minimalism found in his cordless phone, each desk accessory conveys a harmony between form and function.
