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.

The only thing this eraser...

The only thing this eraser is got for it is it's design and looks...other than that it has mediocre erasing ability and if you erase to fast with a little too much pressure one ring by itself will tear off...and that is probably the only way to erase with this thing since lite erasing doesn't seem to favor the material this thing is made of. I suggest you spend this money on a Kokuyo which is actually has fantastic erasing ability and has a great design.

Terrible eraser. Save yourself the dough and get them cheap white erasers that come in blocks at your local national chain retailer. When erasing it clumps together and peels away the eraser. It's not a clean erase either...I had to really rub to get any of my markings off.

As a professional designer and illustrator, I am addicted to art supplies, and have use many many different types of erasers, this is by far one of the best kind - the spiral shape does what it claims and makes erasing between ruled lines very easy. Though I wouldn't recommend it for large areas or brusque use, it is an elegant solution.
