Your Desktop Dumpster is cool. But you've had it for months now. And when your job is as boring and mind-numbing as what you do, you need to keep a fresh-looking workspace to ward away boredom and apathy. Maybe trade it in for these Inbox Mini Cargo Crates?
Made by design outfit Labyrinth, these multi-purpose boxes can hold your mass of office supplies just as capably as any plastic cup. Okay, that doesn't sound awesome. But they look like real heavy-duty shipping containers that you can use to smuggle drugs, guns and nuclear warheads to your black market customers. If they were bigger, of course.
The Inbox Mini Cargo Crates come in sets of three wooden boxes of different sizes. The biggest measures 12 x 12 x 12 cm, the mid-sized 9.5 x 9.5 x 9.5 cm and the smallest 7.5 x 7.5 x 7.5 cm. Each one includes a matching cover, so you can hide your pet tarantula inside (add duct tape, so it doesn't push the lid out of the way) while trying to decide whether to let it loose in your headcase of a boss' office or not (I vote yes, by the way).
Designboom has the Inbox Mini Cargo Crates available now, priced at $37.
