The concept of beautifully crafted desk accessories has fallen from favour but this gorgeous Desk Set by Christian Ghion for XO could reverse that trend.
The set includes two paper trays, normally a very dull item that you wouldn’t have thought could be changed, but here the subtle change in shape and the use of colours, make them much more interesting. The trays, like the rest of the set, are made from ABS plastic in orange, hessian brown and grey, which give the set a retro dimension. Other items include a paperclip holder, pencil holder, pencil sharpener and tape dispenser.
As is so often the case, great design comes at a price, in this cost £170 if you buy it from Nest.
