the ‘rubber barber’ by lu-wei chen for megawing, is a simple eraser that will make you smile. each one has a face at its center, surrounded by a square of colour, which as the user erases, gradually creates various funky hairstyles, depending on how you work it. this process not only results in a happy interaction between user and the eraser, but also reminds people to use their imagination, and that sometimes mistakes can bring humour!
