The following is from the designers:

The Buro range is the result of Adrian and Jeremy Wright's first collaboration with renowned design brand Lexon. The London-based designers were invited to create a product, or range of products, to celebrate Lexon's 20th anniversary.

Ubiquitous items like staplers, hole-punches and calculators clutter up most of our desks. They rarely match or have any sense of unity. Here, the designers saw an opportunity to create a range of desk tools which work well and look great, both individually and as a set.

Buro brings together the objects commonly found on the desk into a coherent, practical range. With each item taking the form of a simple block, they can be neatly aligned or stacked in any orientation much like a collection of books.

Buro is available in three colour gradients – green, grey and purple.

Materials: ABS plastic with a rubberised finish.

  • gorgeous, make them in red-orange..?

  • arquiteto

    one for me please. very nice!

  • I get where they're coming from, but I think once you have to write "stapler" on the side of a stapler, you have failed at designing said object. It could have all looked so much cleaner…

    Maybe it's just because I'm the type of guy that can complain about anything.

    • Jeff

      I would agree with the latter of the two comments …

    • maybe it's for easier to recognize when being stacked.

  • mike

    like the design… but use of bio-plastic instead of abs plastic would be better for the planet…

  • I like how the colour of the tape is ambiently changed when different coloured plastics are used.

  • wh smith

    nice but this forgets that the majority of people will never align them in such a way on their desk….. as such does each individual item have enough character on it's own?

  • G.had

    Great design! I like the text labels on the side. Reminds me of the spine of a book. The only thing i don't understand is why it hasn't been done before – very nice!

  • Kirby

    The anal type guy might take pleasure in lining them up and if he doesn't theres no need for the labels because the objects are quite self explanitory.

  • nicey

    someone borrows your stapler; 'misplaces' it and says hey you can have this one, it works better anyway. same with the other bits; and they can't understand your distress as each one is replaced by something…. well, 'common'. oh! the agony.

  • pat

    in neeeeed this for my desk

  • Win

    awesome… would love to obsessively compulsively keep them straight on my desk. boom.

  • AlexColina

    FAIL. form over function. Attempts to be pretty as a package,turning tools in preposterous positions to fit the stack..i.e. : the calendar! how useful is that? and the USB HUB? please…. From a simple beauty perspective I could see how a beautiful labeled-stack of tools could be appealing to the uber-anal but if you where going to turn the hole punch sideways to accommodate the "stack" why not the tape dispenser? it breaks the whole thing.
