I love when I stumble upon redesigns of staple items that you never thought could or should be revamped—case in point, this Nendo shoehorn. I mean, I would have argued for days that the classic shoehorn was perfect and irreplaceable, until I saw this design.

Designed for Maruni, the Nendo shoehorn is carved from a single block of wood. Magnetized, it fits like a perfect glove. Check out the gallery above to see this perfect, minimal design.
