Denkle / Pencil Sharpener


Denkle is office electric pencil sharpener design. The purpose of this project is making pencil sharpener easier for designers to use.
Traditional pencil sharpener is no longer fit for designers work. Designers need a pencil sharpener that could be used by just one hand, and could be moved to any place. Therefore, I put worm drive and wireless charging technology into Denkle. Worm drive could let knife goes automatically, and users don not need to push pencil for sharpening. Wireless charging make it more convenient for users to move pencil sharpener to any place they want.
