The only real solution is to nail down your organization game and with a desk like this, it&#8217;s really easy to accomplish. Designed by <a href="http://www.goncalocampos.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Gonçalo Campos</a> for <a href="http://www.wewood.eu/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Wewood</a>, <a href="http://www.wewood.eu/products/desks/metis" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Metis</a> is a solid wood desk that may be compact, but it&#8217;s outfitted with all kinds of compartments and sections you can use to stow your gear.
