Small everyday essentials

New office furniture is all very well, but don’t we all want our tape dispensers, staplers and scissors to be at least as sophisticated? This was the idea behind the decision of Japanese company Suikosha to contact British designer Michael Sodeau with the request to put together a small range of stationery with the above articles plus rulers, alarm clocks and erasers. All in black, white, yellow and orange, and with the name Anything. These practical and functional products are the first result of their collaboration, and several small office aids will follow shortly. After that, the partners plan to specialise together in … Anything.
