Here in modern times, where we often carry out tasks and operations with a computer in front of us, in our work, studies, and hobbies, a landscape-design desktop notebook has now emerged with an exquisite size allowing it to be neatly placed on your desk.
Offered in two sizes compatible with the standard 13 and 15-inch laptop widths, these notebooks can be used in both landscape and portrait orientations, and save you space. The version for use with 13-inch laptops offers a perforated design, so you can remove unnecessary pages, and can also detach individual notes to give to others.
A separately-sold notebook is available for the larger size (for use with 15-inch laptops), making it easy to carry your notebook with you, slim yet fully able to hold whatever content you decide to write into it. The main component utilizes the three traditional Japanese colors of “Byakuroku (Pale Green)”, “Haijiro (Grey)”, and “Nibiiro (Dark GRey), for a chic appearance with a prominent sense of sophistication.
The cover and paper inside are “Bagasse paper”, a bagasse pulp mixture made from sugarcane draff. Bagasse is a byproduct in sugar production, and as surplus quantities are processed as waste matter, their use in bagasse paper makes it possible to utilize unused resources and contribute to waste product recycling.
Not only can the use of bagasse as a raw paper material reduce the amount of lumber used, but in addition lesser amounts of energy are used in tree-felling, collection, cargo-collection, and transport generated when lumber is used as a material. This makes bagasse a material that can help contribute to environmental conservation, with trial calculations showing that it can reduce Co2 emissions.
Since its establishment as a manufacturer in 1944, Daigo Corporation has worked with various paper products, mainly diaries and pocketbooks. The company’s strict dedication and standards as a pocketbook manufacturer in its product creation and its robust binding techniques, which allow it to achieve what is demanded of high product quality levels such as durability, ease-of-use, etc., have allowed it to realize sound quality that can be seen in these desktop notebooks.
The 3 mm graph lines that beautifully decorate the notes have been rendered in the “pale-green (Byakuroku)” color that is the CDT brand’s signature shade, giving the product a nonchalant presence that doesn’t interrupt one’s thoughts. Excellent usability is also on hand, as both sides of the pages feature a triangle on the right and left, allowing for bookmarking, numbering, and indexing.
This notebook has made improvements to its original design and is now lighter, a product ahead of its time.
