We humans sit on a spectrum going from fans of minimalism to lovers of maximalism. Some people get their sense of zen from having decluttered spaces, others gain their sense of personal belonging from decorating their space with things that define who they are. We’re here to say that we support both forms of individualism! Whether you love the idea of Scandinavian Minimalism or workspaces filled with objects near and dear to you, you’re going to absolutely love this selection of nifty desktop accessories! The list includes minimally-driven desktop organizers and tabletop toys, productivity tools like reusable notebooks and brain-stimulating fidget objects, as well as some rather fascinating picks like a stainless steel puzzle that is deeply engaging and a keyboard used by the influencers of the tech world. Take a look at the selection below… you won’t be disappointed!
1. Levitating Pen 2.0
Forget about writing in zero-gravity, this pen is designed to challenge our traditional ideas about pens and their behavior. Seemingly suspended in its holder at a 23.5 degree angle, the Levitating Pen itself is a grand writing instrument. The pen holds a Schmidt ballpoint cartridge, with its ridged design making the pen easy to hold when in use. When done writing, you close the pen’s magnetic cap with a satisfying click and position the pen in its holder that has been magnetized to keep the pen floating in that position. To add to the fun, a simple twist leaves the pen spinning in its place for a good 20 seconds, allowing you to interact with the pen on a whole new level!

2. NOOE Config 01
NOOE’s tabletop gear does a pretty remarkable job of using minimalism to ‘spark joy’ and get you excited about working. The 5-piece workspace kit, known as Config 01, features a laptop stand, mobile stand, stationery organizer, wire organizer, and a ‘desk rug’ for your keyboard and wrists. All the products are sustainably built using only walnut wood, anodized aluminum, and vegan suede. As a result, NOOE’s Config 01 collection looks like a Nordic-inspired visually cohesive set of productivity-enhancing tools that boost your focus while keeping your desk clean, minimalist, and just drop-dead gorgeous! The laptop and mobile stand elevate your gadgets at the perfect height and angle, with bent aluminum sheet supports and wood-block bases. They’re complimented perfectly by the stationery organizer and ‘wire governor’ which help you declutter your desk while displaying your pens and pencils, and keeping wires accessible yet hidden from view. Finally, the desk rug, made from vegan suede, provides the perfect tactile touch to the experience, keeping your wrists cushioned while preventing your keyboard and/or mouse from scuffing your table’s finish! The only work setup company to win a Red Dot Award, all of NOOE’s products are made in small batches to reduce waste, and are designed to be recyclable.

3. The Tetra Puzzle
Craighill’s puzzles make playing Wordle and Newton’s cradles look like yesterday’s news… With the remarkable all-metal design and their sheer geometric wizardry, Craighill makes some of the most sophisticated tabletop toys that stimulate the senses and the mind. The Tetra, for instance, is a tetrahedral puzzle made using four identical interlocking stainless steel pieces. You’d think it looks pretty straightforward, but pick it up and fidget with it and you’ll realize how far from ‘easy and intuitive’ it actually is. Fidgeting with, disassembling, and reassembling the Tetra requires a fair deal of focus and attention, as well as a probing, exploratory mindset. “It pushes your boundaries — if only a little bit — and invites you to learn something new”, say the makers at Craighill. The Tetra comes in two variants – brushed stainless steel and a PVD-coated black. It’s designed to last a lifetime and provide endless hours of meditative peace and focus while you play with it, and joy while you watch others try and figure out the magic behind its assembly!

4. Keychron K8 Pro
An ergonomic wireless keyboard with the soul of a gaming keyboard, the flagship Keychron K8 Pro boasts a uniquely comfortable and intuitive typing experience. The K8 Pro sports double-shot PBT keycaps that wonderfully guide the fingers, and a specially-crafted internal design featuring a layer of sound-absorbing foam and a silicon pad that help cushion the keycaps as you type to create just the right kind of ASMR-worthy clicking sound. The keyboard comes with QMK and VIA support right out of the box (which means you can reconfigure the keystrokes to suit your personal needs), and Bluetooth 5.1 that allows it to connect to as many as 3 devices together and swap between them (with native support for Windows, Mac, Android, and even iOS devices). For the avid gamer, each Keychron K8 Pro comes with customizable south-facing RGB lights that illuminate your board. You’ve even got the ability to use the wireless device in wired mode (to eliminate lag), as well as the possibility to easily hot-swap every key with almost any 3-pin/5-pin MX-style mechanical switch. The K8 Pro comes with an ergonomic, finger-loving design that can be height-adjusted to positions, and an impressivel 4000mAh internal battery that gives it 100 hours of use (depending on the RGB backlight brightness and flashing pattern). Go ahead and add this one to cart… MKBHD, Unbox Therapy, and Dave2D did!
5. The Limbo
You may recognize the LIMBO’s classic shape from that final fleeting scene in Inception, but here’s something that’ll surprise you – this top pretty much defies reality with its ability to spin for more than 4 hours continuously! In 2018 LIMBO’s team set a new Guinness World Record for spinning continuously for more than 27 hours, the LIMBO Top is a fidget toy that’ll warp your brain and make you wonder whether you’re in a dream. Magical spoiler alert: LIMBO’s secret is a silent hidden motor, powered by a rechargeable 3.7V battery controlled by an accelerometer. When LIMBO spins, the motor provides the right amount of angular momentum to keep the top spinning for hours without submitting to the powers of friction. Each top comes with a precisely machined design featuring a stainless steel base that allows the top to spin smoothly on any flat, polished surface. The top itself comes in both machined aluminum and titanium variants, and even though the LIMBO can spin on any flat surface, you can even grab a special disc-shaped base for your top to spin endlessly on, while you ask yourself if you’re stuck in a dream!

Featuring its signature cylindrical style, with two flat edges running length-wise to prevent it from rolling, and of course, its iconic magnetic cap, the stilform INK is the fountain pen to end all other pens. The clever magnetic cap subtly self-aligns as it snaps to the pen, owing to the multiple hidden neodymium magnets, that ensure the cap fits perfectly. Built from machined titanium, the pen doesn’t use any glue or plastic in its construction. In fact, its titanium body boasts an added Diamond-like Carbon Coating to make its surface finish completely scratch-proof! Each stilform INK pen comes impeccably crafted and assembled in Germany, in a variety of anodized colors for the aluminum variant and in DLC black for the titanium variant. Designed to be the best version of a pen, Stilform enthralls with its simplicity.
