dutch designer michiel cornelissen created this DIY kit that allows users to assemble their favourite pencils into a large icosahedron. the kit comes with small connector pieces that slot onto the pencils creating a form that is 15cm or 30 cm in diameter. the connector has five slots arranged in a star formation around a hollow center, providing the structure to the geometric form. the final assembled form uses 30 pencils and can be used as a decorative object or turned into a lampshape. the design fits standard hexagonal pencils allowing users to make use of those spare pencils lying in their desk .
