Origami Desk Organiser Review

Summary

Make a good impression and be more productive with Origami’s paper-folding desktop set. Beautiful, elegant, durable, and functional, every item is designed to meet your daily needs.

Pros

  • Modern and very beautiful
  • Durable
  • Functional

Cons

  • Heavy
  • Tad Pricey

Many desk organizers today look very outdated that they no longer blend well in modern and minimalist offices or homes. On top of that, their lifespan is incredibly short that you’ll probably replace them in just a few months. For instance, mesh metal holders will start rusting, paper magazine files will lose their shape, and plastic units might break. However, with the Origami, all these are no longer an issue.

Incorporating the traditional art of folding paper into its designs, Origami offers some of the most elegant and beautiful desk organizers around. It is 100% made of metal, making each item on the set solid and durable. The company also uses electroplating technology to prevent the products from rusting.

In terms of price, however, Origami is a bit pricey compared to other desk organizers. Prices start at €29 or around US$35 for a 3-piece set on Indiegogo. For the whole paper-folding desktop set, you’ll need to pay €79 to €89 or more than US$95 to US$105. That’s expensive considering that you can buy all-in-one desktop organizers for just under US$20.

All 8 items are made of anodized metal, making them last longer than other organizers in the market. While there are other “metal” products around, most of them are made of only metal mesh. However, since Origami products are all-metal, the whole set can be very heavy. To be specific, all 8 pieces weigh about 4 kg.

Aesthetics

Here’s where the Origami truly shines. All 8 products follow a geometric shape, which looks very minimalist and modern. The finish and texture also make them look more sophisticated than most metal organizers in the market. On top of that, all items are offered in different colors. If you want something more classic and versatile, black or warm gray is a great choice. On the other hand, if you want to make the items stand out more, blue is a nice color.

The Verdict

With its beautiful and sophisticated design, the Origami is certainly an eye-catcher. But more than that, every piece of the set is practical and functional. So aside from helping you keep your things more neat and organized, it will also make your space look better. Whether at home or the office, Origami is a great choice for a desk organizer.
