Deceptively pretty. Really very functional. MUKK’s Desktop Organiser that arrived carefully bubble wrapped stands as tall as my hand. Here are my thoughts.
MUKK is a Malaysian design initiative that produces thoughtful, minimalist wood items. Read more about the lifestyle brand and the two young ladies that started MUKK in Design Plus Good, Jeremy Tan’s excellent design online magazine.
The wood is light in colour and smooth in texture. The three compartments have lyrical proportions. Narrow-narrow-wide.
The narrows fit my paper clips, washi, and page flags just nicely, then in the wider, I place my Post-Its.
The darker coloured wooden plugs house the russet plastic rope, which is sturdy – and can handle even the smaller amongst my wooden pegs.
I suppose I couldn’t refuse getting my buttons out, a mishmash I found in a Melbourne weekend market several years ago.
The legs of the desktop organiser can be removed so it can be packed flat, if I need. The parts fit snugly and so, I don’t need to worry about things coming loose. I may or may not glue things in, but I might need to take this overseas – so maybe only then.
And in case you’re interested in exploring how MUKK considers using the Desktop Organiser, this is a photo the girls, Vivian and Chia Yi, kindly agreed to share with me.
I would very much like to order the egg crates pictured below, but these were not yet ready to ship. Hoping to get my hands on these soon.
It’s wonderful to be excited about two young ladies making it in the design world. Invest in good pieces worth keeping for years. I think you’ll find that MUKK makes just those.
