If you were to pop into Cool Material HQ, you’d find a bunch of desks with toys on top of them. Not little kid toys and action figures—though, there are a few of those—but attractive, professional time-wasters that help us when we need to concentrate and look good when not in use. The newest one of us will be adding is Vortecon. The spinning desk toy is hypnotic when you give it a spin, creating an optical illusion of a flowing helix. Machined from stainless steel, brass, or copper, the Vortecon is right at home in any place of business. It spins silently and is addictive to play with. You can back it on Kickstarter now and even take advantage of an early bird special if you act quickly enough. 

STEALTH-WORKBENCH-BOXES-IF2

[Shop]  Just like the stash boxes that lined your father’s workbench back in the day, these metal vessels are ideal for all sorts of loose necessities. The two cases—the smaller one is nestled inside the larger one—are both made of durable stamped steel and offer simple, attractive storage for EDC gear, loose nuts and bolts, or anything you’d normally toss in your kitchen junk drawer. Each set is made in Italy and comes in a stealth color exclusive to Cool Material. For all the valuable knickknacks strewn around the house or tossed haphazardly on your workbench, these boxes are ready to placate your inner organizational fiend.
