The best things in life are stackable, especially when it comes to workspaces, where everything needs to be within reach yet there’s no room for it. Solving this problem in style, Industrial Facility devised this easy-on-the-eyes system of containers – a pencil cup, a tissue box, a media stand, three trays and two boxes – that pile on top of one another in endless configurations, and can be mixed and matched in four neutral hues. But functionality is the true star: such details as cantilevered edges, removable lids and cup holders maximize every inch, while silicone accents secure smart phones and tablets. hermanmiller.com, industrialfacility.co.uk
