Storage system designed to accommodate all aspects of your life that make it into people workspace.

Recognizing that the modern office desk tends to attract items far beyond just stationary, London design studio Industrial Facility created a way for people to house the plethora of items that make it on to their desks throughout a normal working week.

Sam Hecht and Kim Colin of Industrial Facility designed the Formwork plastic boxes with a non-slip silicone base to stack in any combination, lining up horizontally or stacking vertically. They were inspired by a previous project that examined the analogue and digital items that tend to populate a desk.

The Formwork storage system was designed for Herman Miller, and balances keeping some items on show and within easy reach, while hiding others from view. Some pieces include cantilevered ledges that act as a tray, elevating important objects and making them easily accessible.

Talking about their design with Dezeen, the pair said:

The idea is that with forms that are pluralistic and stackable, the range of use is far broader than in the office, and can be used in the home, the workshop and many other places too.

Take a look through the gallery below to get a sense of just how versatile the storage system really is:
