Kokuyo Kadokeshi Eraser
The Kokuyo Kadokeshi was designed by Hideo Kanbara in 2001 and won the Kokuyo Design Awards in 2002. “Kado" means corner and “Keshi" means erase. Everyone likes a sharp corner of a new eraser, and the Kadokeshi gives you 28 corners to choose from. The Kadokeshi proved so popular in recent years that jumbo, mini, and keychain variants were produced. We remain fond of the original, one of those rare products that almost immediately received international acclaim as a design object, even being added to the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Kokuyo, based in Osaka and founded in 1905, is one of Japan’s biggest and oldest stationery and office furniture companies. Kokuyo’s Campus notebook line is the everyday standard for children and adults alike across Japan. And while many of Kokuyo’s products lean toward the utilitarian side, they have made efforts to remain innovative and creative, not least of which is the Kokuyo Design Awards. These awards take open submissions from industrial designers around the world, with several winners eventually seeing their products mass-produced by Kokuyo.
