Industrial desktop: concrete, copper & marble stationery

Words by 

Plastic? Pah! Today's stationery utilises more time-tested materials such as copper, concrete and marble

Tom Dixon Studio has designed a new range of stationery in his signature material of copper. Launched at Maison & Objet in Paris, the Cube collection includes a stapler, tape dispenser, desk tidy and pen. The designs have a heavy-duty, blocky aesthetic, stripped of decorative details, allowing the material to take precedent. Each piece is made from copper-plated zinc alloy.

Seoul-based designer Jinsik Kim has created the StoneAge range of desktop monoliths from blocks of marble. The ovoid shapes are constructed from five freestanding sections (four sides and a middle piece), which can be separated and arranged to form pencil pots, paperweights and note holders. Kim has produced the pieces in three types of marble, with a smooth outer surface and matte inner surface.

Tiny City is a set of stationery containers by Taiwan studio Tripleliving, made from a material it calls Celement, a soft concrete. It is intended as architecture for your desk; the material is shaped into the form of a miniature corrugated steel building with two 'floors', for long and short pencils, and a little wooden nook for a rubber. There's also a chimney that fits on top, with a wooden roof, which houses a pencil sharpener.
