| Visit | Koncent

One rainy day in Tokyo, three of us went wandering around the Kuramae area where we stumbled into the Koncent Design and Product shop.

Koncent is owned by h-concept and is a brimming treasure trove of unique and interesting fun stuff. It is also a hub for new talent and great ideas. The owner works with emerging product designers to assist them in developing their ideas into commercial items that begin their journey into the world right here.

The dreamy translucent Leaf Memo by Ryosuke Harashima who also designs some other quirky desk objects that make me just want to hold them. I especially like the | Clip Nest |

Another leaf shaped item that caught my eye was the Leaf Thermometer by Hideyuki Kamagai. Seemingly magical little leaves that change colour in different temperatures, shifting from brown when cold to yellow when warm. 

Sticking to the leaf theme, this is what I brought home. Some cute little leaf drawing pins! Designed by Joonhyun Kim and made of polycarbonate and stainless steel in Japan. 

"This pushpin resembles a sprouting plant with a unique shape that keeps the needle from facing upwards if dropped. I designed it with the innocence of a sprout emerging from concrete in mind."

I think that they are nothing short of adorable as well as practical so I brought back 2 sets. One for me and one for a lucky winner:

  3. What a wonderful discovery! I still remember when I first stumbled upon Muji in Paris, it was litle finding a treasure box of wonderful and quirky things just waiting to be discovered. I wasted many happy hours there and every time I visit again, I find myself regretting that I didn't bring home more thing. But Muji has nothing so adorable as those green pushpins. I'm already thinking how they would brighten up my pin board at the office!
