The Memo-Blocks by Dave Hakkens, a designer born in Valkenswaard and based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, is a sculptural take on the common notepad. Shaped like a rock, it is a better alternative to such stationery, including sticky notes. It replaces the constant waste of individual pieces of paper with a reusable whiteboard-like surface that can be wiped away once the reminder or idea written on it is no longer of use.
The best part is that he’s offering the instructions for three versions via download so that you can make them yourself with everyday items you have laying around – plastic bags, foil, or sheet protectors, along with tape or glue. Easy peasy!
