If 1 size size doesn't fit all, it goes to reason that 1 design result seems similarly limiting, right? The modular Nest Office Caddy suits modern multipurpose organizing needs. Lift the lid on the ash wood caddy and find compartments for desk essentials. When closed, multiple boxes can be stacked up. As for the steel frame, it can double as a handle for moving the caddy, or as a stand to support a phone or tablet device. Part of the debut capsule collection from Umbra Shift, the Nest was designed inhouse by the a Toronto-based design power house Umbra. The design-centric Umbra Shift launched in 2014 to rethink all manner of everyday items—in minimal style and for maximum effect.
It’s not very often that a global enterprise takes the opportunity to revisit its early days but, with Umbra Shift, a household name is doing just that. Conceived as a brand extension of Toronto-based Umbra, a design leader in home products for more than 30 years, the offshoot line harkens back to the company’s original creative impetus with a diverse assortment of freshly minted home goods. The brainchild of Umbra’s design director Matt Carr, the collection draws on the talents of both emerging and established designers—Harry Allen, Hlynur Atlason, Fugitive Glue, Albert Lee, Paul Loebach, Philippe Malouin, MSDS, Lukas Peet and the Umbra Studio—for its selection of carefully crafted furnishings and objects. As Matt puts it, “These are all things we actually want to take home.”
