nendo has designed a new stationery collection for their own brand ‘by | n’. the series of office items includes multipurpose and interchangeable objects, from a three-dimensional, cube shaped rubber band to a detachable paper clip ring. specialized ‘cubic rubber-band’ —  available in blue, charcoal, and white — is a free-standing, geometrically shaped elastic that is to locate in a drawer and to pick up. the design of the ‘link clip’ paperclips come connected in a ring shape, and are detached one by one for use, keeping desktops tidy. the fasteners are actually made of paper so that they’re easy to take apart and can be recycled. to make up for paper’s material weakness — compared to the traditional metal version — nendo selected a high frictional weight for a stronger grip.

the ‘flip pen’ is mostly a cap. reversing it turns the pen into an electronic tablet stylus. the design also comes with a shorter cap as well, for easy portability.
