I am a White Cherry Wood Clipboard. Lean on me, when you're not strong, I'll be your friend, I'll help you write on and on.
We use clipboards every day at the shop, so we are especially thrilled to present our own version designed in collaboration with Makoto Koizumi! The designer originally created a small clipboard for grocery lists and expanded the series to Japanese standard paper dimensions but they never quite fit the US standard letter size we use on a daily basis and the clip never held enough papers! We tweaked the design over the course of a few iterations to nail the perfect dimension and are happy to say that we’ve never seen a commonplace office tool filled with such simple beauty. The bar of cherry wood acts as a clip, securely holding papers in place through the invisible force of magnets in a seamless one-touch mechanism. We particularly love how the fastener is removable for both orientations. Magnets are hidden along both the longer and shorter edge of the wood back, so the clipboard can function in portrait and landscape mode. The magnets are strong enough to hold the clipboard on your fridge to hold notes, photos or grocery lists in place. The piece embodies Koizumi-san's ability to see beyond the established structure of an everyday object to transform it in ways that are sensitive to the human experience, and bring true joy with its use.
