Punching Bricks / Punching Bricks

Punching Bricks
Punching Bricks

This design is originated from the basic concept that "Interlocking bricks join sheets of paper". The most important feature is that the convex part of the brick is designed to punch paper.

The conventional way of joining sheets of paper needs a stapler and a staple. If one of them is missing, you cannot join sheets of paper. The staple is not reusable.

Punching brick can join sheets of paper by interlocking bricks, and it is reusable. The linking cloths of two bricks can be used as label, and you can put a pen in it.
