中國式創意鉛筆盒 / Chinese-style pencil case


Design Concept:
The Chinese-style pencil case is designed to convey the ancient Chinese book (bamboo scrolls) concept. The Chinese-style pencil case design is based on an ancient Chinese way of threading together small bamboo pieces to form a book (or scroll); the ancient Chinese way of reading books is from top-down and right to left, therefore, it's designed to close by rolling left to right, thus opening the pencil box from right to left. This pencil case is like none before,open the case and use it like a pen cup holder too.
