ERJ staff report (TP)
Tokyo − Japanese design studio Nendo has launched a range of stationery with innovative twists on traditional ideas, reported Stuart Robarts for Gizmag.
The range was conceived by Nendo founder Oki Sato, and includes a pen that becomes a tablet stylus, a ruler with graded markings for visibility on dark or light surfaces, and a rethought cubic rubber band that's easier to pick up and maintains a better grip on rolled documents.
The three-dimensional rubber band is available in blue, charcoal, and white; and Nendo says because it is a free-standing, geometrically shaped elastic – it is easier to locate in a drawer.
Nendo was founded by Oki Sato in 1997 and its designs range from furniture to office spaces to watches. The stationery range will be available in Japan from February and abroad from April.
