This is a carefully selected stationery set that carries 8 stationery essentials for daily use. Designed by Naoto Fukasawa, a leading product designer in Japan, the new Team-demi won the Good Design Award 2020.
Packed with Excitement
We wanted to create stationery
that is a delight to own.
So, we carved a beautiful new team-demi
inspired by our original palm-sized stationery set released in 1984.
The eight tools, with their striking shape,
offer up-to-date, minimalist functionality.
They fit so snuggly into the case
as if melding into the enveloping structure.
Open, take out, use, put back, close.
To evoke a new experience whatever the action,
the set is minutely designed down to sound and comfort.
As everything around us turns digital,
you won’t be able to resist taking this set in your hand.
The new team-demi.
This stationery set contains:
Case: Made of ABS material, the case without any protrusions applies a magnetic hinge. By using two magnets on the hinge side and one magnet on the opening side, it is an enjoyable experience every time you open and close the case.
Scissors: Uses a Bernoulli curved blade that can keep the optimum blade angle for firmly grasping the object. Achieves a light and comfortable sharpness from the root of the blade to the cutting edge.
Cutter: Reliable specification to replace the entire blade without breaking it.
The fluorine coating makes it rust-resistant and will not become sticky even if it is used to cut adhesive tapes. The blade is durable, hard to break, and has a long-lasting sharpness.
Stapler: It is a compact size and contains 50 No. 10 staples at the same time. It also has a remover that allows you to easily remove the staples.
Glue Tape: Characters can be written on the 12 mm wide x 10 m winding mending tape, which is convenient for labeling.
SIM pin: It can be used for removing the SIM card from your smartphone or tablet.
Measuring Tape: it can measure up to 1.2 m. The steel measure inside is durable and easy to use.
Liquid Glue: Thanks to the special glue formula, the liquid glue is less likely to wrinkle paper. The tip is shaped like an eye drop. Suitable for detailed crafting work.
Ruler: A 10 cm ruler with rounded corners. A metal plate is used on one side, making it suitable as a cutting ruler. There is also a mini case under the ruler, which is convenient for storing some small items such as sticky notes or clips.
Box Dimensions: W 124 mm x D 85 mm x H 35 mm.
Weight: 264 g
