Everyone has different working styles including how clean (or messy) they keep their desk. Maintaining a clean desk doesn’t have to be a monumental challenge. Even for people who are naturally messy, keeping a clean desk at home or in the office can be as easy as making use of a simple desk organizer that is not only functional, but also stylish.

It doesn’t take Marie Kondo to tell you that clutter is the enemy of productivity. We’ve all experienced it at some point. Now it’s time to declutter, tidy up and leave those work desks clutter-free. A clean desk is a well-functioning desk, helping you be more productive throughout the day with everything in its place.

I recently got a package to review and blog about this awesome ergonomic storage solution called Bento® Box. according to its creator, this ergonomic toolbox was inspired by the Japanese lunch box which is called, yes you guessed it a bento box.

“Along the way of designing the Bento product series, we got inspired by how a Japanese lunchbox lets you organise, store and carry around your lunch for work. We decided it would be great to apply that concept to an ergonomic product and that is how Bento® got its name.” said Robert Bronwasser, Dutch designer.

But enough with the food induced salivation as Bento® Box by Dataflex is a beautifully Dutch-designed desktop accessory that is designed to turn your workspace into an organized, practical and trendy workstation.
