    y nowadays, objects lacks character. yes, yes, some would describe it as honest and unpretentious. But i find these objects, as "try-hard" to be minimalist.

    y blocks of wood? I am not going to put these on the table. it could only contain few pieces of pens, pencils or maybe.... scissors. I bet they have not consider the basic stationary to be place on the blocks they came out with.

    i quite agree wit zola. y pay $20-$30 on a block of wood when it can only hold very......few pieces of pens. tis is kinda pathetic for a company that comes out with such designs.
