Appree is a company founded in Seoul, Korea in 2008 that produces a range of whimsical, nature-themed office supplies. Founder Sangwoo Nam was inspired to start creating these products when reflecting on his childhood; a time when he was constantly at play outside, experiencing and feeling one with the natural world around him. Nam feels that, as people, we grow out of this childhood one-ness with nature and become robotic automatons toiling away in windowless concrete cubes. Fun!
Through design, he aims to get us back in touch with the outdoors we once knew, using products like these Leaf-It sticky notes. Leaf-Its come in a variety of realistic leaves and flowers to choose from, bringing that bit of green back into our daily lives. Even better, the more you use them, the more lush your office becomes (assuming, like me, you don’t throw out your sticky notes and instead stick them endlessly on top of one another).
