You can think of the Landscape Organizing Boxes as small metal containers similar to Altoids tin boxes. And you can very well use them the same way, using the container to hold various small items you want to keep around your desk. Except instead of simple flat lids that makes them ideal for slipping into pockets, the lids are patterned with various types of three-dimensional terrain, turning them into decorative items that double as functional desk organizers.
Built by Taiwan-based Danzo, the collection contains lids inspired by natural formations found in East Taiwan’s Rift Valley, each one designed to serve a different function. Need a place to keep loose change and paper clips? Yep, there’s a box for that. How about one for pens, staplers, and scissors? Yep, that too. Want a stand to hold your phone upright on the desk? As it turns out, one of the lids should handle that, as well.
The Danzo Landscape Organizing Boxes consists of five designs: basic, hill, volcano, waterfall, and valley. The basic is a simple lid with a slightly recessed top and rail-like protrusions for holding small items like clips and thumb drives, while also serving as a suitable surface for setting down your glasses or wallet. Hill, on the other hand, consists of hill-like protrusions with shallow holes in the middle for holding small jewelry, while Volcano puts a single tall protrusion for holding pens, scissors, and similar office supplies. Waterfall consists of a raised end with a sudden drop, while Valley has a multi-layered surface that functions well as a smartphone stand.
