Sharpen TWOgather / sharpener

Sharpen TWOgather
Sharpen TWOgather

Sharpen TWOgether, is a pencil product designed for children, combining a sharpener on the bottom. In the way, children couldn’t sharpen pencils unless asking others for help, sharing the sharpener. Though no one could accomplish the task by himself, everyone has the ability to help others. Moreover, children could learn how to interact with each other and experience the happiness of helping people.

Nowadays, due to the impacts of the declining birthrate, children have less chance to interact with others. Through this design, we hope to create an opportunity for them to interact with each other and make them learn how to work with others.
