Even though we are moving — forcibly — toward the paperless office, the reality is that we still at some point find ourselves with piles of physical documents to deal with, which usually means a desktop covered in paper clips.
Clipnest not only helps you keep that mess in order, but it also turns it into your personal artwork. Designed by Ryosuke Harashima, it consists of a wooden egg — crafted in Yamanaka, Ishikawa Prefecture — stuffed with a magnet. Place the Clipnest on top of a pile of paper clips — it becomes an instant nest.
At ¥2,520, the Clipnest was originally only being sold at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, but later this month it will be available to buy on the ARICATA online store. There's also a black urushi lacquer version available for ¥3,360.
