FLAT PIN / PIN

FLAT PIN

When using pins, we often get hurt by them.
Since a sharp pin is exposed to users, they get hurt when using it, dropping it, picking it up with a hand or stepping on it. 'Flat Pin' was designed to protect users safely from sharp pins. Contrary to general tacks with sharp pins always exposed to users, users are safe from sharp pins as they are hidden. As the both wing parts covering a pin is made from silicon, you do not get hurt. As a 'flat pin' looks like a butterfly, it has visual effect on top of simply fixing something. By using it as a point, you can add emotion and presence to daily scenery.
