Waribashi / Pencils

Waribashi
Waribashi

The design is combining two every-day design objects, another representing the Japanese consumer culture and another symbolizing the creative process. Pencils are connected to each other like waribashi, the single-use chopsticks. Material is bamboo: it is light, cheap, fast-growing and therefore eco-friendly material.
