Pretty much the last thing that comes to mind when when you think about rubber bands is cool. But a group of Japanese designers called Nendo have transformed rubber bands in something undoubtedly hip. 

The new rubber bands are called the Cubic Rubber Band and are made from silicone. But what really makes these new rubber bands chic and sophisticated is that they are three dimensional. 

As you can see, some of these rubber bands fit perfectly around a paper scroll and also serve as an ideal place to store and keep smaller office supply items. You can purchase these 3D rubber bands for around $10 online, where they come in a variety of colors.
