Most Modest for the Home and the Workplace

This San Francisco-based design studio should be anything but modest. Established in 2012 by Justin Champaign, Most Modest specializes in craft-inspired technology goods that are beautifully minimalistic and purposefully designed. The studio also partners with industry leaders to create various products for the home and the workspace. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites below.


Hough: This storage vessel made in various sizes/colors with natural materials will keep all the bits and bobs on your desk in order (we’re talking about you, random paper clip!).


Simon: Instead of fiddling around with your wires to find the tail end, save a few seconds and use Simon to keep your cables and gadgets in place. The soft pad is a bright alternative to your average catchall.


Niko: With its wood form and knitted mesh power cable, you’ll actually want to display the Niko rather than exile it to the land behind the furniture.


Niko dock: To be used with the Niko, this power dock provides organizational bliss with its three built-in power outlets, concealed storage pocket, and pencil cup.


Powerslayer: A joint product with Velvet Wire, the Powerslayer will make you ditch the standard charger that comes with your phone or tablet. It charges quickly, is optimized to prevent overcharging, and provides extra surge protection.


Kona: In collaboration with HighTower, the Kona Lounge collection features poufs and sectionals that allow for ample configurations and maximum comfort.
