Part tack and part magnet, these office essentials designed by Hironao Tsuboi are capable of holding heavy-ish objects two different ways. The small, gold plated head is a double magnet so when objects are attached magnetically they appear to float (see images). When spearing notes into the wall, the thicker head also makes it easier to pry the tack out. Smart, bi-functional and sublimely simple, purchase them at 100% for ¥1,050.
