Norway-based industrial designer Alexandre Chappel has completed the fantasy many of us dream of: Organizing all of the contents in the drawers of our workspaces.
To do it, he designed an insanely comprehensive system of modular bins that can hold just about anything, and lock into place with a grid system.
The bins can be 3D printed with even a small printer, with some of the larger pieces being printed in halves.
Bins do double- and triple-duty with more space beneath, for less-used items.
Here's a look at his system in action:

As a fellow industrial designer (currently studying) I likethe idea of making your own organizers by 3d printing. This allows you to makeorganizers that can snugly fit your tools and equipment (regardless of size or shape)into your drawers, whether bought, or custom made you can make the most out ofthe space rather than buying a regular injection molded one that may leave someuseless gaps in drawers for things to fall and get lost. 3D printing may alsobe more environment friendly depending on what material you are printing (asPLA is made from fermented sugar) you will also be able to choose whatevercolor you desire and even color code certain tools in some way. My only problemwith this is that it may take very long to print all the parts, may using anotherprocess like loser cutting may help speed up the process.
I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
