You're Gonna Need a Bigger Desk

Whether you're a legal shark in a suit or a card-carrying marine biologist, this business card holder is a desktop design with bite. Laser cut from solid walnut, it's hand-rubbed with a blend of jojoba oil and beeswax for a soft finish. The three-part design can be assembled to face either left or right, and slots together in seconds. Alex finds inspiration in the remarkable natural designs of animals and his shark makes a great gift for graduation, the boss's birthday, or Jaws-loving coworkers. Handmade by Alex Ahrens in Austin, Texas.

“Horns and antlers, long necks and long bodies…trunks that reach the ground–the uniqueness of animals has always interested me.”

It may seem like a long way from aerospace engineering to creating animal-inspired designs, but Alex Ahrens finds common ground in precision and attention to detail. His high-tech training gave him an eye for spotting flaws—useful when creating products that people will interact with. Further time spent as a product and packaging designer gave him an appreciation for practical, well-designed objects that are attractive as well as user-friendly. "The uniqueness of animals has always interested me,” Alex observes. "Finding ways to blend functionality with their unique features inspires a lot of my work."
