‘desktop fireworks’ by tomomi sayuda is an alternative office stationary with an extra function. having spent time stressfully working, the designer has created a series of objects that enable employees to take a moment out of their day and escape the fact that they are away from home in their cubicle. by pressing a red emergency-style button, an orchestra of color lights, loud music, floating bubbles, sparkling confetti are released into the air to clear the mind of any negative thoughts. the set includes: a material cabinet, two bookends, a coffee mug, a tape dispenser, a pen holder, and a bulletin board.
