Obviously these paper trays aren’t the most decorative of items, but I still think that there’s something quite handsome about them – I suppose in the same way that I find Brutalist architecture so appealing. But looks aside, I also know how handy these trays are for organising life: I have a wooden tray that sits permanently next to my laptop, and is where I dump everything from receipts, to magazine articles that I want to re-read, to lose screws for Mint goods. Basically they’re the dumb valets of work life – as opposed to plonking all your clothes on top of a dumb valet, you use your tray for all organising all your work related odds and ends. It somehow makes your chaos seem manageable – well for me at least!
Note: On the whole the trays are in good condition, but there is some minor wear to the paintwork (see photos)
