Hers Experimental Design Laboratory is a design company in Japan similar to IDEO in the US. Such companies are famous for rethinking and rebuilding common objects in innovative ways. The head designer and president Chiaki Murata envisioned Metaphys as a new stationery concept. Murata-san and Metaphys have extensive design experience and have been involved in projects such as Microsoft Xbox console design, the Hono electric candle and Uzu cyclone vacuum cleaner (both Red Dot Design Award winners). Metaphys continues that creative tradition with its clean and thoughtful stationery line.

The Metaphys Blanc Fabric Cover Memo Pad is a worthy creation of such a fine design company. It challenges many of the famous brands popular today. The binding is made of stain resistant canvas fabric wrapped over cardboard, giving the pad a satisfying texture. But the most attractive part of the pad is its faint, dotted grid lined paper. It’s a dream playground for the creative mind. Sheets of off-white paper are glue-bound and can be easily torn off, and have rounded corners to reduce wear and tear. Different cover colors and sizes optimized for different portable uses are available.

The paper is off-white...

The paper is off-white smooth and I really like the discreet quad ruling. The glue binding is of good quality; the paper tears out easily without mess.

However, this paper is not suited for use with fountain pens. The ink will bleed through. You can get away with using a fountain pen if you plan on only using one side of the paper. Only one side is quad-ruled; the other side is blank. The paper is best suited for pencil, ballpoint or gel pens. At this price-point for a 70-small-sheet memo pad, better overall quality and versatility is expected.

Nice paper but fabric...

Nice paper but fabric cover is over an easily creased thin cardboard layer. Would be nicer if cover did not crease so easily.
Excellent quality paper...

Excellent quality paper similar to color laser paper. Nice, barely visible grid lines for even line writing. Each page tears very well. I use this paper to write notes and place in the wallet since the paper holds up similar to a dollar bill, I can always locate it with ease. Seems like a hefty price but the quality beats any post-it.
