Konno Card Holder by Georg Jensen
Hiromichi Konno’s CARDHOLDER is intended to simplify the process of exchanging business cards
Designer Hiromichi Konno had a mission: to make the awkward process of exchanges cards at the end of a meeting smoother. He spent time studying the hand and how the hand and fingers move when a card is removed from its case. Konno then used his observations to create an accessory that allows one to manoeuvre a card in and out of the case with maximum discretion and ease.
The cardholder is rectangular but with a slight curve that accounts for ease when opening and closing the case. There is a magnetic lock that does not affect credit card magnetic strips.
Never before has networking been so smooth.
