The path in designing soto, lago, and volca.
The theme this time was to create a small summer resort on the desk.

Usability, universal design, functionality, adequate pricing, and other factors ― a wave of no-nonsense routinism trends is coming into the world of stationery, which is supposed to be fun. I feel suffocated when I look at A-student stationery.
Soto, volca, and lago mean forest, volcano, and lake, respectively, in Spanish. The line of the three landscape trays invite you for a little relaxation. Soto provides various uses by leveraging the forest-like shape; you can place cards, store rings, and play a ring toss game with rubber bands. You might feel as though you were on holiday at the moment you toss a rubber band. Volca is a clip stocker. When you take one clip out, volcanic flames of clips come out one after another from the crater. Lago is a multipurpose tray with a hollow in the center of the cover. For example, you can store stamps in the tray and put a little water in the hollow. When you want to wet a stamp, slide it into the lake.
