    About Design

    Design by Office for Product Design

    The design for our pencil sharpener was inspired by Japanese capsule toys aka gashapon. The top is an integrally-formed aluminum sharpener while its lower half is a weighted zinc alloy. Resting on its heavy bottom, this egg-shaped pencil sharpener can rock around like a roly-poly toy. When held, it feels like one solid piece although it can be emptied by its separation line in the middle. This unique and interesting item will create a harmonious atmosphere in the workspace. It also represents the everyday balances of life and work.
