16 Playful Desk Accessories to Bring Creative Fun to Your Office

Cool Desk Accessories

Chances are that you spend 40 hours a week (or more) sitting at a desk, so why not make your environment fun? With the help of some cool desk accessories, you can transform an otherwise drab workspace into a place that complements your personality. At My Modern Met Store, we’ve curated a collection of our favorite products that’ll help you get started on your quest for more joyful office decor.

Think about the office as your home away from home; the items you pick should reflect who you are. If you’re someone that loves history, consider the faithful desk companions by Today is Art Day. They've imagined iconic artists and amazing scientists as five-inch-tall action figures. One of our best sellers is Vincent van Gogh who arrives packaged with two ears—one normal and the other bandaged. Albert Einstein is another one of these figurines, and he comes equipped with an augmented reality app that lets you visit his lecture hall when you’re taking a much-needed break from spreadsheets and emails.

Are you the type that fidgets? We have you covered with products that are perfect if you like to keep your hands busy—even if it’s not on the computer. The Big Cat Pile looks like a sculpture of kitties, but it doubles as a game of reverse Jenga that you can play with a coworker. Or if you prefer to go solo, give the Helicone a try. It combines science and kinetic art to form a toy that shifts its shape with just a flick of the wrist.

Scroll down for more of our picks for cool desk accessories, and be sure to check out the entire collection on My Modern Met Store.
