Desktop Stationery OrganiserDesktop Stationery Organiser

Designed and manufactured by Martin Bolton 2011

This is a desktop organiser which is created from multiple laser-cut profiles from discarded cardboard packaging bonded together to form a solid block.


The cardboard packaging utilised in this design was once utilised for freighting Heineken beer from Holland to South Africa. Most of the packaging was covered with vivid three colour print of the Heineken branding, which at first glance is attractive and visually striking. Once the beer reached the liquor store, the packaging was then set aside, ready for disposal. Through the re-implementation of this waste material, with a manufacturing process which manipulates the material rather than recycling the material, a usable product is created which effectively solves the problem of a cluttered desktop.
