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 Viss Spiral Eraser (like the Kokuyo Kadokeshi) is a another approach to the blunt eraser problem. If you were to imagine an eraser that always has a sharp edge, what would you think of? The Viss Spiral Eraser is like a designer's dream that has become a reality. This spiral design offers a continuously renewing sharp edge with its screw-like design. Black, orange and white color erasers available.
