FOSTER MEMO CLIP / 2016
Usually the memo clips come with a literal ‘clip’ to pin the chit on, but this one is quite different in its form, material, originality and its freshness.
This reinterpretation celebrates the beauty and characteristics of the humble material, wood. The minimal design draws inspiration from the sleek and dynamic structure of the Millau-viaduct by Norman Foster. It has the quite refined sculptural quality to it. It doesn’t carry any vehicles across but a fresh new accessory on the desk.
The design draws inspiration from the Japanese traditional woodworking and design aesthetics of simplicity and calmness.
This product has a unique aesthetic and application of materials, the distinctive use of tension in wood.
