Called Monster, the collection also includes a pencil rest with corresponding grooves and a leather bag.
Here's some text from OKOLO:
The Monster collection:
"This collection was named Monster after our chance encounter with a vertical shaper in the woodworking shop of Joseph Miele. After many weeks of mutual observation, communication was finally established. Each one of our objects is sculpted by each of its jaws. We have rendered the shape of its teeth to enclose some pencils. We have rendered the strength of its teeth with a black screw to lock in some pencils. We have rendered its skin to make a bag." Tomáš Král and Camille Blin.
The extremely aesthetical, highly elegant, and functionally professional design of the designers from the ECAL in Lausanne won our hearts right away. For this reason, we decided to start a cooperation with two designers whose names are inseparably linked with Lausanne. Tomáš Král and Camille Blin represent the current virtuoso design, combined with a light conceptual approach and poetic interpretation of the given object.
The Monster collection made for OKOLO, which is the result of their first joint project, contains a special case for four pencils, wooden block for storing writing utensils and minimalist leather bag. We have equipped the first case with four different Koh-i-noor pencils, and thus created an ideal set for all drawing enthusiasts.
