The design of paperclip has not been changed much since it was invented in Norway more than hundred years ago. One of the winners of the Design Award organised by the big brand in stationary,Kokuyo is known as "Number Clip" . The original shape of the paper clip is moulded into the shapes of number 0 to 9 and a function of
categorisation is complemented therefore.
The product made in Japan appropriates the design of papeclip as well. But an anchor is added to imitate the shape of clothes-hanger. It turns out to be a photo holder, slip hanger, postcards hanger,love-letter hanger and even a rack for suidice letter.Well, it can simply be a paperclip as you like. Simple creativity like this can be surprisingly amazing.
