Dotty clock by Alessi
Modelled after astronomy instruments, Abi Alice’s steel timepiece is sure to appeal to graphic designers who worship at the altar of simple geometric forms.

The back panel can be installed on either side for optimal visual balance. $400, at Umbra

Pivot shelf by Hay
Stash your stapler in plain view and avoid having to dig through drawers before that big meeting. Lex Pott’s powder-coated steel pedestal is equal parts wall art and functional storage space.
