Consider the Paper Tray by Paul Cocksedge, and under what circumstances a real sheet would take such a shape. If one is laid flat on your desktop and you drop a book adjacent, the displaced air might cause the corners of your document to curl upwards, lifting it and making it shift.
This is one reason why you might find a holder or a paperweight useful on your workstation, so that you can keep printed pages neatly together. Different to most, however, this paper tray is smooth with no distinctive edges, which could translate to the object's ineffectiveness.
Of course, Paul Cocksedge's sculptural creation is not flat; instead, the Corian furls in two corners to gently cradle its contents. For added functionality, it integrates a small hole in one end to serve as a little pen holder.
