I have a relative so old-school that he still keeps a baseball bat behind the door to his office. He's a respectable small business owner that came up in New York City's '60s and bad '70s, eras when bat-related interactions were a distinct possibility.
But these days, having a Louisville Slugger sitting ominously in the corner could be a turn-off to clients and co-workers alike. So for those seeking to populate their office with heavy objects that can be brandished to make a point, why not consider Slabs?
These solid concrete desk accessories hold paperclips, pens, a roll of tape and even your smartphone. The hand-sanded, sealed finish will feel great in your hands, too. And while they're not as menacing as a bat, at four inches square and an inch thick, they still have enough heft to be visually persuasive when waved around during negotiations.
Slabs are distributed by Portland, Oregon-based design brand I Love Handles. Check out their other stuff here.
