Reimagining the pencil

Eighteen students and two designers propose a series of variations on the theme of pencil, re-thinking an everyday object and giving it new functions and meanings.

Designers Luka Or and Keren Tomer asked 3rd year industrial design students from Holon Institute of Technology to re-think the idea of a pencil, each student in his own way.
The everyday useful object was reinterpreted in 18 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. The project was a short and “sharpened” exercise as a preparation for a bigger project the students are working on at the moment, setted around “gift products”.
