Founded in 1905, Kokuyo quickly became the industry leader in paper products — from account books to letter paper, forms and notebooks.
In 1960, Kokuyo ventured into a transition “from paper to metal”, producing their first filing cabinet. With the economy of that day and age — increasing complexity of administration x economic growth — there was a growing demand for know-how and office supplies to manage the ever-mounting pile of paperwork effectively.
Over the years, Kokuyo has developed various products that enrich lives. That feeling when you open up a fresh new notebook and see the blank page. That feeling when you put pen to paper and let the ideas flow. Whether through stationery, furniture, or spatial design, Kokuyo strives to unleash people's inner creativity. Creation is an expression of uniqueness. Bringing out people’s individuality contributes towards a better future.
At Misc Store Amsterdam, both in our shop as well as online, we proudly carry some of Kokuyo's earlier steel desk items. The designs have not changed since their product launch. We also carry their famed Campus notebooks and a selection of the contest to market entries from their Kokuyo Design Awards, such as the Beetle Tip Marker and the Kadokeshi Eraser.

climate change solutions
& plants a tree for every order
Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like.
That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.
Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
Investing in projects focused on carbon avoidance is not the same as simply buying carbon offset certificates, that is why we have chosen to work with Ecologi.
