New value for stationery.


New value for stationery.

A change in perspective provides a change in value. Since 1905, THINK OF THINGS has been the experimental arm of Kokuyo, trying new things with new perspectives while editing old standards to meet modern needs. For example, the Field Notes pocket notebook. This classic item became popular for field surveys because of its easy-to-carry size and hard cover so the company added more colors. Now it’s available in seven colors including the newest additions—khaki and greige. Or, the standard filing cabinet revised with drawers boasting handles that turn each drawer into a satchel. THINK OF THINGS proposes new perspectives on interior design as well as product design. Stackable chairs populate the sales floor, partition space, and café, giving visitors room to contemplate products and their uses. Long-time sellers have displays boasting explanations much like one would find in a museum.
