The Big Clip by Arash and Kelly
Sometimes, a great idea is great at any scale. Take the paper clip, for example. Here’s an extremely simple device made from a small length of cheap wire that solves two fantastically simple problems: 1. How do I easily hold these paper documents together, but also have the freedom to take a document out if I want? 2. How do I do this extremely cheaply? The paper clip, of course, solves these problems elegantly. So bigger means better, right? Well, kind of. I would say that Arash and Kelly’s Big Clip is a simple solution as a coat hook, but does not really meet the high level of solutions met by its smaller counterpart. So, maybe the paper clip is not incredibly awesome at any scale. I guess the Big Clip really just looks cool super-sized. In contrast to the Big Clip, Arash and Kelly have also designed super-sized PostIt Notes furniture. The big PostIt really lends itself to the bumping up of the scale. I always find myself wanting a bigger PostIt and running out of room, so I have to string several PostIts along to finish a thought. Now with Arash and Kelly’s solutions to the full page size notes, I can really write down how I feel and have people be able to read this clear across a large conference room which comes in handy at a brainstorming session.
