deutsche liebe

started in 1988, japanese company Delfonics creates
a variety of minimal, functional, and
intelligent paper
products. their philosophy is
simple (albeit slightly lost
in translation):

the stationery opens up your idea

of particular note are the Rollbahn series of notebooks,
(lined, grid, or sketchbook) that comes with
pages of pouches at the back, and
elastic to hold closed.
the notebooks also come
in convenient and cute japanese
mini size.
these products demonstrate the immense
popularity of the current trend in japan
ese design for all
things "german designed" --
even if not authentic. Delfonics
manages to
meld a sense of german cleanliness of design
with japanese aesthetics, and for this we love.
