Bop on over to artlook and you'll find a lot to catch your eye, mostly by Israeli designers. I'll show you a few of my favorites. Many (but certainly not all) come from Monkey Business.
Update on April 17, 2008: The English pages I originally linked to seem to have disappeared - so I'm changing the links to point to the Hebrew pages, which is better than nothing.
1. The "urban board" shown above - a magnet-friendly white board - is one of four made by Monkey Business.
2. This organizer with a magnetic back can be used on (most) refrigerator doors, on a metal file cabiner, etc. It also has eyelets that can be used to attach it to non-magnetic surfaces. It's also from Monkey Business.
3. This basket is "manufactured by people who are coping with mental health problems."
4. These are described in English as A-Z bookholders, but they are actually Alef (or Aleph) and Tav, the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Update on Jan. 13, 2013: The place I'm finding these now describes them properly, as Alef to Tav bookends.
5. And then there's this item called House - "a storage solution for objects without a home."
Update from yesterday's post: There's a place to buy ecojot folders on-line now; it just got announced today!
