What Should Have Been, Is: STÁLOGY

Office stationery well designed, STÁLOGY's line of notebooks, pens, and desk supplies come with their own philosophy printed right on the packaging. Their minimal products seem plain at first glance, and yet something about them catches your eye. The packaging stylishly presents product specifications, making them feel instantly useful, and the products' simple demeanor is not unlike a freshly cleaned desk, brimming with potential, only waiting for you to begin.

Over the seasons, we've expanded our STÁLOGY selection to include things like translucent sticky notes and washi tape dot labels, but their most popular item stateside remains the Editor's Notebook, a gorgeous blank volume (hello notebook nerds) that comes in 4 sizes, 3 paper formats, and 2 styles: 365 day or 1/2 year length. It bends back on itself without breaking, looks better with age, and has compellingly thin, high-performing paper especially suited for your favorite writing utensils.

It's called the Editor's Notebook because you as the editor—whether for a design project or your personal life—know what kinds of tools you need, a good notebook being crucial. So although its designed with some structure, it offers the flexibility to use as you see fit. Some users enjoy making custom planner and project management formats, while others are happy to journal with chickenscratch handwriting and their favorite inky pens and markers.

Now about that philosophy…

the editor's notebook in action

The link between stationery and people began when people first used a stick to draw on the ground. The link, time and again, has continued to evolve along with the evolution of people. However, its intended purpose has never changed, and continues to exist today.

STÁLOGY—a stationery design collaboration between Nitto Group and Manabu Mizuno, a leading creative director in Japan—is now rethinking this evolution, endeavoring to create stationery with good design and function at a reasonable price, improving the "standard" level of stationery. 

Eliminating unnecessary ornamentation and fuction, they are taking a new look at what's really necessary, rediscovering essential elements and aiming to finally arrive at what should have existed all along.

Stationery, standard & technology.
