Chromis / Pencil Sharpener

Chromis
Chromis

Emptying the shavings from the receptacle of traditional pencil sharpeners is always a mess. Chromis was inspired by the mechanism of clamps to provide a simple, clean and quick way of emptying. The safety-locking feature under the bottom provides a closure to avoid unexpected opening of receptacle. The marine fish, chromis, inspired the modern,
whimsical form and gives the design an emotional feeling and characteristic. Various color choices are available for different preferences.
