Pottery Barn’s Daily System with Recharge Station
August 23, 2007 Isn’t it strange how people who are masters of the digital realm often struggle with arranging real world objects into a functional office. For these proponents of the geographic strata method of desktop filing (aka anarchy) who would like to get organized but just can’t find a spot for everything, Pottery Barn’s Daily System is well worth a look. It has a series of modular components (corkboard, letter bin, magazine rack, magnetic chalkboard, whiteboard calendar, an office organizer with three hooks for keys, slots etc) which can mix and match to suit even the most dyslexic brain. Pick of the bunch is a new Recharge Station that incorporates Smart Technology so you can organize electronic devices and recharge MP3 players, handhelds, mobile phones and laptops all in one place.
This new modular component, designed as a single unit, has a whiteboard on one side and storage cubbies with a power cord on the other. Each Daily System modular component slides onto a wall-mounted stainless-steel rod, so you can easily move or add each piece.
