Australian multidisciplinary designer Henry Wilson's Vide Poche is a perfectly-sized tabletop organizer for your day-to-day detritus. Sand-casted in either aluminum or bronze, the tray's sloping silhouette is reminiscent of an industrial shovel, but with a more elegant form. "I like this ritual of leaving all the bric-a-brac of your day at the door in one place," explains Wilson, whose name for the tray roughly translates to "empty your pockets" in French. The double-sided design is reversible and easily fits an iPhone, some change, matchboxes and a set of keys—or anything else you can stuff in your jacket.

Each Vide Poche is handmade in Wilson's Sydney studio, and 20% of all online sales benefit Amnesty International. Pick one up in aluminum for $165 or bronze for $330 from Wilson's website.
