I've always had a soft spot for stationery, so much so that I'm designing stationery products of my own to be developed next year. That's also why a recent project by nendo caught my eye.
GLOO, as the name suggests, is a set of adhesive products - glues and tapes - for KOKUYO, and they're designed to be practical as well as nice looking.
For example, the glue stick - pictured above - is square, meaning you can easily get glue into the corners of paper, whereas the tape dispenser - below - has a suction cup on the bottom so you can use it with one hand.
Great stuff. You can find out more, and see the whole collection, on the nendo website.
