Erdem Selek and Hale Selek established their Oregon-based product design atelier Selek Design. Their products aim to have a silent character that go unnoticed.
They have designed a ruler and pen for Rubberband.
Corrugated, a 25 cm non-numeric ruler in ABS plastic, aims to bring visual silence to our lives in a world full of visually competing objects. The product is a statement, a response to the need for turning distracting work spaces back into places to concentrate. Higher ridges represent every 5 cm and lower ones represent 1 cm, similar to the lines used for counting millimetres on standard rulers.
The Cone pen is a rollerball pen (black ink) in ABS plastic, designed to be a picturesque yet simple pen that does not visually dominate other surrounding objects. The form comes from the idea of keeping the look of the pen, even when the cap is on.
