Almost everyone knows they need to keep their offices organized, depending on the definition of the word, but few like to do it. Just like any other chore, office organization feels boring and a waste of time, at least until you actually waste time looking for things you need right at that moment. Ironic as it may sound, the biggest culprits in cluttered offices are things that don’t even belong there, at least not for long periods of time. Glasses, wallets, watches and accessories that we bring often land on our tables and then seemingly disappear into the unknown. Giving these ephemeral items a better home goes a long way toward solving this problem, but you still need to get into the habit of putting them there. This minimalist beauty of a box promises to make this habit almost fun, so we’re giving it a spin to see if we can catch the organizing bug with it.

Truth be told, almost any container can do the job of giving your daily carry-ons a permanent home on your desk. That’s why there are an endless number of options on the market for desk organizers of all shapes and sizes. Developing the habit, however, is just as important as the container, and habits, good or bad, are formed when the action has very little friction and can even be fun.
The Revov Tray Box helps you create this good habit by presenting a box that is not only easy to use but also a joy to look at. The shape of the organizer itself may not be groundbreaking, but the combination of colors and materials really make it stand out among your other desk accessories. It’s something you’ll want to put on display, which often also means putting it within arm’s reach and reducing friction when putting them on or taking them off.
The top tray is made of beech wood, giving it a warm and soft look. The unique wood grain also makes each tray truly one-of-a-kind, adding a sense of luxury to the product. The wood also makes the tray light, aiding in the organizer’s signature spinning trick. The bottom case, by contrast, is made of milled aluminum, and its smooth, cool texture complements the tray above it well.
This Quick Access Organizer is certainly a pleasure to look at, making it easier to get used to its presence and, in the long run, its purpose. If there’s one thing that might bother some, it’s the thin gap that exists between the disc lid and the body. This gap makes it look like the lid is floating slightly above the box and it is necessary to be able to move it smoothly. The gap is so thin it could be almost negligible, but little things like this could freak out some detail-oriented people.
The Revov Tray Box is designed to be easy to use without forgetting the fact that you’re supposed to be organizing things, not just throwing them into a single bin. There are two different containers for this purpose, and the system cleverly uses the box lid as another container for items you need to drop quickly and pick up again repeatedly. Normally, this would mean you don’t have quick access to the contents of the box, but that’s exactly what sets this smart desk organizer apart.
A slight push of the disc, or perhaps a finger pull from one of the corners, makes it spin smoothly, revealing the treasures the box contains inside. There’s literally next to no friction, so there’s also no excuse for not making use of the space for your EDC or other belongings. Another push rotates the disc back to its closed position. However, it does not spin freely because strong magnets stop it in the right places.
This rotating action means there will be a lot of movement, but luckily the solid aluminum base gives the box the stability it needs to keep it from tipping over. At the same time, though, it also means that the Revov, as a whole, is a bit heavier than most box organizers. You may also want to avoid placing very heavy items on the top tray when the box is empty, as gravity could cause the box to tip backwards when the center of gravity is off.
Although not directly related to its usability, the box requires some free space around it to function properly. There should be clearance on all sides for the tray to spin and stay in place, so you can’t have it too close to walls or other tall objects. It also has the side effect of making the box really stand out on your desk, showing off its sleek minimalism alongside your prized EDC possessions.
This beautiful box organizer makes keeping your desk tidy frictionless, almost literally taking the friction out of putting things where they need to be. For EDC and small tools, the smooth rotating mechanism is a joy to use and almost addictive in how easy it is to twist. You could almost use it as a riot game, though that will reduce it to what it can achieve for your long-term peace of mind.
The Revov box is also intended to accommodate small items, which explains its small capacity. The box inside has enough room for a small wallet, but anything bigger won’t fit. The tray at the top can hold a few money clips, keys, glasses, pens, and even a phone that sits a little to the side. If you regularly carry larger EDC tools in your pocket or bag, this, unfortunately, will not be their home.
The two parts of the organizer contrast not only in their materials but also in their layout. The tray lid has carved sections that define and limit the items you can place on top. The bin inside, on the other hand, has no dividers at all, which means things will get very messy. You could put in your own improvised dividers, but that’s extra work for very little profit, especially if you change the layout every now and then.
As with any well-designed product, this Quick Access Organizer also puts a lot of thought into its long-term appeal. Fortunately, the Tray Box checks all the right boxes when it comes to offering a sustainable solution to your everyday clutter. First, no harmful materials are used to make this stylish box, from the wooden lid to the aluminum box to the magnets and metal pin that give it a smooth rotating motion.
The Revov box is also long-lasting and durable thanks to the same materials as well as the absence of complex mechanisms. Only a metal pin serves as a pivot connecting the lid and the box. You can easily oil this pin or its hole when its movement starts to get rough. On the other hand, however, this small piece of metal could also be lost, making it difficult to find a replacement that will fit perfectly. It’s possible, though, so it’s not a total loss.
Made of premium and sustainable materials, the Quick-Access Organizer brings a beautiful, sturdy and durable tool to keep your desk tidy while also serving as a decoration for the same desk. Its magic trick of smoothly swinging to reveal a small but spacious container inside never gets old. In fact, you might be tempted to turn it into an ad hoc game, spinning the empty disc around while letting your mind wander. In other words, it’s a multifunctional office accessory that hides its talents behind a minimalist facade.
It doesn’t come without its price, though, especially a literal one. At $69, it’s not exactly the cheapest box you could put your stuff in, though it’s admittedly not the most expensive either. But while there are many modular or multifunctional desk organizers on the market, few will hit all the right spots for something that is this and more. Fortunately, this disc and box combo rocks just the right way.
Keeping your office tidy doesn’t have to be a chore. In fact, it should be something you enjoy so you keep doing it over and over again. Unfortunately, our minds seem to be primed to immediately cringe at the thought of cleaning. Fortunately, there are fewer things to clean up if you put things where they should be in the first place.
Desk organizers make it easy, but the Quick-Access Organizer makes it fun. A quick push removes the cover to let you access the storage space inside the box, and the way the tray lid snaps into place is so satisfying it’s almost addictive. Sure, it’s a bit on the pricier side of things, and you’ll have to leave some room for its rotating top, but when you’ve got something as beautiful and long-lasting as this, you’ll definitely want to show it off anyway.
