din ink
jan 21, 2008
din ink by andrea cingoli from italy

designer's own words:


Turn your favourite office tool from your desk in a common cutlery...this is din-ink.

A set of pen caps, including a fork-cap, a knife-cap and a spoon-cap, that replaces the normal pen cap during lunch time!
All caps are made by annually renewable resources, like natural starch and fibres, to be 100% biodegradable and atoxic, warranting the best alimentary use.
Dispensing each set in a compostable packaging the whole set is designed to respect the environment.

Now give your office ballpoint pen a good excuse to be gnawed by your teeth: use them for din-ink.
