giha woo: twisted pencil

‘twisted pencil’ by giha woo

‘twisted pencil’ is a vase which utilizes a pencil to form the outline of its shape. created by korean designer giha woo, the design conveys a particular value with a nuance of amusement by using the writing utensil as its structural component. in comparison with general products, it isn’t a pencil vase that can contain many pencils, but includes new aesthetics, considering the morphology of objects around us.

  • very cool, this is Design

  • I really appreciate its playfulness and simplistic elegance. Love it! Not everything has to be practical in order to be relevant. Not up to Design Boom standards??? Please!

  • I like it. As a concept. But not as a best product ever.
    And not for pencils sharpened any shorter than about 3/4 original length.

  • This is really poor, a nicknack at best.

    Not up to the standard one expects for Designboom.

  • it is impossible to move it with a pencil from one place to another.
