Elevating the lowly pencil

As their book Usefulness in Small Things attests, Sam Hecht and Kim Colin take great pleasure in everyday items, and few items are more everyday than the lowly pencil. In providing a place for these analog writing instruments, the designers thoughtfully included a ledge for smaller items too, some certainly digital, such as a memory stick.

The entire family

Formwork stackable desktop storage designed by Sam Hecht and Kim Colin helps you bring order to your papers, tools, and artifacts. With shapes and sizes that were rigorously considered to relate an intuitive sense of utility, the accessories may be stacked and combined in any way you see fit.

Formwork: Stackable Desktop Storage

Designed by Sam Hecht and Kim Colin to help you bring order to papers, tools, and artifacts.

A variety of forms for a versatile workspace

Balancing meticulous attention to details with a thoughtful consideration of context, Sam Hecht and Kim Colin created Formwork in varying permutations, allowing some items to be kept out of view, while others remain within reach, based on aesthetic considerations or frequency of use. The sophisticated forms, material production, and color palette indicate a level of thoughtfulness rarely brought to desktop goods. Each form is shaped in ABS plastic. Some pieces also include a non-slip silicone base.
