MUJI 195mm x 137mm Sketchbook
As I grow to appreciate more and more of the things that wear and tear gracefully, I notice myself distancing from the super polished. It’s quite difficult to design such objects. It’s the reason why I love this MUJI sketchbook so much. I sketch in it so freely, without having to worry about taking care of it. The paper and binding quality isn’t so high where I feel it’s too precious. When sketchbooks become too precious or expensive, I gain the mental impression that only the finest of sketches are worthy to be drawn inside. It creates a sort of hesitation that shouldn’t exist for designers. This MUJI sketchbook wrinkles in such a way that seems like it was used with love. And I can tear this thing up and all it would do is give the book more personality, history and a stronger sentimental relationship that I already have with it. The book on the left is filled with thoughts, notes and doodles (of the good and bad), from my past 6 months at NONOBJECT. I just purchased a new one today. Here’s to the next 6 months (although I want to burn through these more quickly)!
oh and btw, Happy 1 year Anniversary SF MUJI Soma!
