Elements of Life

Naoto Fukasawa

We would confidently consider Naoto Fukasawa one of the finest and most influential designers of the past 30 years. His work across product design, technology, and architecture speaks for itself. The Japanese designer, synonymous with minimalism as a driving principle throughout his work, has conceived many iconic objects over the years. One from 2018 is the pure black stationery collection titled Elements of Life. Produced by Chinese brand TAOBAO Choice, the collection includes a combination of technology, storage objects, and drinking utensils. Basically everything you'd need for an everyday office setup.

The complication, however, is that these objects might no longer be available due to the uncertainty of the production company's fate, owned by ALIBABA.
