Singapore’s Désinere has taken the rough industrial texture of raw concrete and turned it into a series of paperweights (Rok Concrete Paperweights) that fit neatly into the palm of one’s hand. These weighty objects have a faint autumnal form, a vintage soul and are deliciously tactile. Priced from $45.
