Exacompta Bloc Faf – Retro Office Excellence

The Exacompta Bloc Faf
The Exacompta Bloc Faf is a cool retro inspired pad of paper held together with real metal bolts and washers. People just adore this pad of paper when they see it. It has a mid-20th century styling (think Perry Mason and Della Street) while being incredibly sturdy and useful.

It stays put on a desk, with the underside having five rubbery feet. A bloc of two hundred sheets is deposited on two metal spokes, and held in place with a metal bar and two washers. The metal does corrode a bit over time.

It will definitely get double-takes in an office – yet it is in no way fancy or overdone – just great design.

A nice “upgrade” I recently discovered is that it can take quadrillé (graph paper) refills! I’ve got one waiting to jump into service.

  1. Exacompta is part of the corporate Clairefontaine group, so any store that stocks Clairefontaine paper or notebooks, Rhodia pads, Lalo paper, etc. might be a place to check.

    I was lucky enough to find this locally.

    One thing I forgot to mention – the Bloc Faf is available in three sizes – I chose the intermediate format.
