Concrete desk collection | Designed by Magnus Pettersen

Getting organized is often as simple as having the right tools. The Concrete Desk Set is a great way to ensure that everything has its place and stays there. A pure and simple form, informs of the functional aspect of the objects. The smooth casting from solid concrete gives the objects a tactile texture.

This set includes a small tape dispenser that fits a standard roll of 1” tape, a pencil holder and a small tray. And the set is available in light grey and sand.

Keep it simple, clean,

organized and uncluttered

with an open mind.
