The Foster Series of desk accessories for the German office brand Helit (shown above) is possibly one of the most lusted after of all the desk accesories. Ahead of Apple when it came to using aluminium these accessories are like architecture in miniature, when assembled together form a cityscape for the desk adding to the fun of a 12 hour day.
