    Whether it’s merely a beautiful tool that makes life a whole lot easier, sometimes it’s the little things in life that give us incredible happiness. As design junkies, we prefer that the two spheres of form and functionality collide and this Product Love feature is dedicated to a few found objects that fall perfectly within that intersection. From office to kitchen accessories, these trinkets and gadgets make us smile.

    Fraga Tray by Gam Fratesi
    Fraga by Italian-Scandinavian married duo, GamFratesi, is a combination of a table and a pouf. The tray can be removed for cleaning, as the fabric of the pouf is removable too. Talk about Scandinavian functionality.

    Grovemade Maple Keyboard
    These design driven goods are pretty bang on. Handcrafted in a workshop in Portland, Oregon, the team of friends that make up Grovemade clearly have an eye for style and quality. The keyboard is sophisticated and clean but not too modern.

    Shkatulka Desk Accessories
    Shkatulka is actually Russian for casket. While this product on our ‘love list’ is actually not in production, we think it should be. Caskets  or boxes of sorts with a ‘secret’, special opening mechanism, were very popular in old Russia (probably still are) and were used for keeping valuables and important items. This storage kit is made of various modules that are interchangeable depending on your needs.

    W&W Tech Organizer
    The W+W Stationery Series by Swedish brand Ideaco & Oliver Franz is a minimal stationery and desk organizer. The “W+W” stands for white ceramic and wood. The tray holds pens, paper clips, and other small items, as well as a memo pad and a smartphone. The grooved tray can also accommodate your iPhone charger when not otherwise occupied. Very practical.
