Office Space: Vintage

Office Space: Vintage

With a multitude of surge protectors, glowing computer screens, and treadmill desks, the modern office is, well, modern. Modern is good, but we still like having a bit of personality around us while we work and not just blinking gadgets. Even if vintage items aren't really vintage at all, they still add character to any office. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Office Space: Woodsy

Office Space: Woodsy

Unless you work in a wood cabin, your office could probably use a bit of an outdoor upgrade. Bringing some of these woodsy products into your workspace will give co-workers the idea that you’re the kinda guy who carries around an ax. Just, you know, not in a crazy way.

After Selling Out in Record Time, Criquet's Nelson Stripes are Back

After Selling Out in Record Time, Criquet's Nelson Stripes are Back

Made with super soft 100% cotton, removable collar stays for an always crisp collar, and a style that’s perfect for the 19th hole, it’s no wonder Criquet’s Nelson Strip Players Shirt sold out in record time this past spring. Lucky for you, the shirt inspired by well-worn hand-me-downs from dad is now back in stock. Unwilling to accept that the perfect shirt was a thing of the past, Criquet co-founders and life-long friends, Hobson Brown and William Nachman, decided to reinvent a classic. Whether you dress the Players Shirt up or down, you’ll be ready for the 19th hole wherever you find it.

Cinder Block Magnets

Cinder Block Magnets

Cinder blocks may have fallen out of favor with everyone but the mob due to advances in building materials, but they’re still iconic. These Cinder Block Magnets (made of real cement!) can be used to hang the shopping list, to-do list, Christmas cards, pictures and anything else...

MSC01 Filo Tape Dispenser

MSC01 Filo Tape Dispenser

We never thought we'd see the day when a tape dispenser would grace the front page of Cool Material. It has. The MSC01 Filo Tape Dispenser by designer Marie Schenker for Alessi is not your average tape dispenser. There are no moving parts and no pieces of plastic, just a very bas...

Keep It Clean

Keep It Clean

PC users can let crumbs fall between keys on on their keyboard and leave greasy thumbprints on their screen all they want, Mac users care about appearance. Okay, before all you PC users jump through your screen, that was a joke (mostly), but if you happen to be an Apple subscrib...

Office Space: Industrial

There’s something about an industrial setting that just inspires you to work your tail off even if you aren’t covered in grease. We can’t promise your productivity will skyrocket by decking your office space out with these industrial inspired pieces, but we can guarantee they’re all far better than that “Hang in there” poster currently on your wall.

Prop Power Extension Cord

Prop Power Extension Cord

Until we get Go Go Gadget Legs, we're going to be stuck with doing some home improvement work atop a ladder. Perched up on one presents a slew of problems and annoyances. Besides keeping your balance and attempting to carry a screwdriver between your teeth, you're going to have t...

Vintage Camera Pencil Sharpener

Vintage Camera Pencil Sharpener

The occasion to use a pencil doesn't happen all that often for us anymore, but we still keep a few around for sketches, plans and back of an envelope math. Sharpening them can be a bit of a pain without a sharpener. We've tried knives and razors and other bladed instruments, but ...

Empty Memory 4GB USB Drive

Empty Memory 4GB USB Drive

Even with all the different Dropbox-like services available we still find ourselves toting a USB stick on our keys or in our bag. We'd love to think that all the information on the Internet is secure, but time has shown that even the big names in "cloud" storage screw up every on...

Inbox Mini Cargo Crate

Inbox Mini Cargo Crate

Normally hearing the term "inbox" gives us a slight anxiety attack. We think of all the emails we've put off responding to that are now buried in a pile of spam trying to sell us "enhancement" pills, painkillers and toner cartridges. No thank you. We would feel a little better...

Gom Series Pen Tray

Gom Series Pen Tray

Parafernalia Falter 2D Designer Pen

The Parafernalia Falter 2D Designer Pen, aka, "pen that you make" is the DIY-ers dream pen, putting the manufacturing responsibilities on you. At first it's a 2D single sheet of steel that you can turn into a ball point pen, stand and mini ruler. It may not be the most efficient ...

Mmmvelopes Bacon Envelopes

Mmmvelopes Bacon Envelopes

J&D's eased us into the concept of bacon flavored products with Bacon Salt and Baconnaise, and even Bacon Ranch dressing. And we gladly ate up every bit of bacon they sent our way with the delightful slogan "Everything should taste like bacon." But we never realized that they...
