    General Information

    The bolide

    The X47 organization system in A5 format is the opus magnum of the X47 range. It has a total of six spring-loaded rails, four of which are for A5 inserts in the binding and one each for A5 and A6 inserts on the outside right and left, so that it can be opened in triptych style and can hold everything inside that facilitates the organization of professional and private matters. The four mechanisms in the waistband hold, for example, two calendar inserts in which professional appointments and tasks can be noted, while the address insert on the right side stores, for example, contact data and the mechanism on the left is suitable for the monthly calendar in A6 format. This monthly calendar, just like the A6 notebook, can of course be latched into the A6 format jacket-pocket compatible X47 system.

    This side of cloud cuckoo land

    At the beginning of every organization there is a tool. This is to be taken quite literally: The Greek term "organon," to which the word organization ultimately goes back, refers to nothing else. But as we all know, there are many tools, even in organization, and often they are digital tools and apps that collect and manage addresses, appointments and notes, and even make them available worldwide via a digital cloud cuckoo land. You can like and use that, but you don't have to. For analog workers, too, there is a wide spectrum of organizational aids beyond the smart cell phone and beyond the laptop or tablet PC, although it is interesting to observe how the size of such analog systems relates to the respective level of technical development of electronic devices: While pocket calendars and notebooks could not be small enough during the heyday of the PDA (personal digital assistant, the older ones remember) (which is why even formats below the largest still jacket pocket-compatible A6 were in demand), in the days of the tablet PC A5 is increasingly succeeding as the smallest serious desk format. The analog organization system offered here offers both formats - but above all it impresses with the well thought-out concept and the partly cross-format combinability of its individual system modules.

    Smart, but analog

    The X47 of the former management consultant Matthias Büttner arose quite tangibly from Büttner's appointment-filled and sociable professional practice and has grown in recent years into a well thought-out system of possibilities and combinations. Appointments, addresses, notes, etc. find their place in individual notebooks, which can be fastened by means of a bar in spring rails in the back fold of the leather cover. First of all, this has the advantage that the cover filled in this way is much slimmer than a ring binder, where a "minimum thickness" is given by design (namely that of the ring mechanism itself plus the cover thickness). It also has the advantage that the inserts remain usable and writable almost all the way to the center of the binder. And last but not least, it has the advantage that the individual "subsystems" (annual calendar, monthly planner, weekly planner, notebooks with different rulings) can be rearranged for the current day's needs in just a few steps: Whether the annual, monthly or detailed weekly calendar is needed for the day ahead (or even all three), which rulings the note paper should ideally have today (are sketches or written notes on the agenda?) or whether a driver's log should be carried along, can be decided just as quickly as implemented - and in contrast to the logic of the ring binder, easily in entire functional units. You therefore only carry around what you actually need - today, but also tomorrow, when the requirements may be completely different.
    We offer the X47 in different forms: On the one hand, there is the organization system in two more or less opulent (and correspondingly cheaper) versions in A5 up to the more or less minimalist small edition in A6. On the other hand, there is the note and calendar cover, which is reduced in its functionality, and where you can also choose between A5 and A6, each with two or three mechanisms.
