If my all-encompassing obsession with workspaces is anything to go by, you won’t be surprised by my reaction to discovering new luxury desktop accessory brand Appointed. My eyes pretty much fell out of my head. A new enterprise by DC based graphic designer Suann Song of SIMPLESONG Design and already a year into the making, Appointed officially launched its Kickstarter campaign yesterday. As a huge fan of Suann and her team’s work (you might recognise the beautiful stationery from this Sunday Suppers event) the new collection does not disappoint. Minimal in style and with a practical, beautiful and handmade ethos as its heart, this new line of work tools “makes utility look luxurious” and came into fruition after unsuccessful attempts to find well made, gender-neutral desktop products within the US. Aren’t they utterly beautiful?
At the centre of the collection is a notebook and workbook available in either plain or gridded perforated sheets, bound with brass coils with foil embossed cloth or textured stock covers. Shall I keep going? Also available are planners and calendars for 2016, brass rulers and memo pads which will be rolled out in time for the launch of their online store later this summer. For more details or to join me in pledging support to get this exquisite new line off the ground take a look at the Appointed Kickstarter page.
