Details: Designers Luka Or and Keren Tomer asked third year industrial design students from the Holon Institute of Technology (HIT) to re-think the idea of a pencil, each student in his own way.
HIT student Ofra Oberman created a series of brush pencils designed for a new and more flowing sketching experience.
Say Or and Tomer, “The everyday useful object was reinterpreted in eighteen different ways giving it new functions, shapes and meanings. The results include a collection of new and intriguing pencils including a tube pencil, a series of pencil brushes, a pencil dedicated for fashion pattern making, a letter stamping pencil and more.”
Each brush enables a different pencil stroke.
The tube-pencil by HIT student Yam Amir borrows the mechanics of a tube to re think the “sharpening process”.
