Oun Desk Tray, 1987
Vignelli was a versatile designer who worked within the Modernist tradition across media ranging from packaging, housewares, and furniture design to public signage. His designs focused on simplicity through the use of basic geometric forms, favoring utility over decoration. This desk tray, for holding or sorting papers and letters, exemplifies the simplicity of Vignelli’s wares. The trays slide out from their holder, making it easy to organize papers.
