A Pencil which we consider it as an everyday object is somehow symbolizing the derivative of a tree’s life.A pencil is usually abandoned while we use it to the end. If we trace back the life origin of a pencil, we may find that every pencil comes from a seed. However, as the pencil comes from trees and why don’t we extend its life? The design concept of “Seed of Pen” is to transform the rhyme of nature into pencil design through combining pencil and seed together.
Our everyday experience offers a deeper meaning for this object. Seed of Pen not only provides a solution to continue the circle of life but also create a beautiful utopia.
