Tsugite is a reusable pencil system that uses a Japanese carpentry method called tsugite. Park conceptualized Tsugite to come in a pack, stocked with around twelve pencil bodies and their corresponding ends. The pencil body has been designed to form an arrow-shaped tip that connects to a horseshoe-shaped pencil tip. Once the pencil tip is too blunt to use, the same barrel can still be used and another tip can be attached. Although no hardware or carpentry is required to assemble the two modules, users can rest assured that the pencil tip and barrel are securely in place, as this same clever carpentry method is used to build houses.
2. The ON Tape Dispenser
This is Fountain Studio’s ON Tape Dispenser, designed specifically to address all of these issues while being aesthetically functional and beautiful. Above all, it brings one-handed operation to the good old tape dispenser, a feature we will all appreciate. The design of ON is centered on the two holes at the bottom. The first hole keeps the tape glued and pressed against the rubber pad for continuous, uninterrupted use. The second hole has a button along the cutter sign to cut the tape if needed. In this way, the user does not have to put the second hand into play, which can sometimes be inconvenient with conventional tape dispensers.
3. The DRILLOG
A cross between a brush, a pen and a nib, the DRILLOG is stationery at its finest. Designed and made in Japan, the fountain pen features a drill-inspired nib that catches ink in its various hollow grooves as you dip it in ink, and the ink gradually moves to the nib under gravity, giving you a new, elevated writing experience that not only results in excellent calligraphy on paper, it’s also a pure pleasure to watch as ink collects in the finely machined spiral grooves pen and moves down as you write.
4. The nominal pen
Inspired by the democratization of space travel and how a private company, founded by Elon Musk, is leading the charge to make space travel accessible to everyone, the Nominal Pen is literally designed to look like a rocket…which in fact can -to be the most literal take on the “space pen”. The name of the pen comes from the term “nominal”, often used when everything is going well and according to plan. Intended as a celebration of SpaceX’s recent accomplishments of being the only private company to send humans to the ISS and back (while even salvaging parts of the spacecraft for reuse at a later date – something no one would ever done), Nominal Pen models itself on the Falcon series of rockets (the Falcon 9 Block 5 in particular).
5. Project Rotate x Yuki Kawae Desktop Zen Garden Hand Rakes
This collection between Project Rotate and Yuki Kawae includes several different hand rakes, each capable of creating unique patterns in the sand. A six-piece groove set consists of six handheld sand rakes that create larger sand patterns. While the handle is made of natural wood, the rake is made up of white trimmings that take on different shapes and patterns. The counterpart to the groove sets would be the six-piece ridge set from Project Rotate. The geometric rake trim of the ridge set differs from the curved and rounded trim of the groove set, but both sets are broad in design and form a unique base pattern for desktop Zen gardens.
Meet the Loop Pencil – this smart design not only makes it easy to use the pencil until the end of its life, but also uses the eraser to act as a stand to keep your desk clutter-free! Loop consists of three parts and each has an important function to optimize the product: the pencil, the clip and the eraser. Once the pencil gets shorter, you use the clip which acts as an extended grip and it also serves as an attachment so you can clip it onto your documents like a pen. The eraser doubles as a vertical pen holder so the desk doesn’t have a bunch of pencils and you can easily find one that’s yours. Loop’s simple yet modular design makes it efficient, reduces waste and maximizes product usage.

Defined by an assembly system akin to LEGO building blocks, Kosumi’s No-Mess Wall Organizer and Planter comes with base grids that attach to walls with 3M strips, requiring no hardware or tools in the process. Once users have formed their basic grid on the chosen vertical surface, the fun begins. Stocked with over 20 different modules, Kosumi’s No-Mess Wall Organizer and Planter comes complete with hangers, magnetic clips, clear storage containers, planters, and cubbies.
8. The Four Sided Long Tail Clip
JaiYi identified that the existing clip, while doing wonders for holding paper in place, also faces ergonomic issues – firstly, the spindle handles tend to slip when we apply force to them. Second, the pressure points in the design are the pin folds that carry all the load, causing them to crack. Recognizing these concerns, JiaYi applied his design skills to transform the classic and take it to the next generation with us with the four-sided long tail clip! The four sided long tail clip makes two simple but radical changes – it lengthens the spindle handle, allowing us to apply the same amount of pressure while exerting less force and it adds a new line of pressure, mid -way of the design, helping to relieve the pressure on the traditional three creasing.
9. The transformative pen and stylus
A unique and versatile writing tool, the Transforming Pen & Stylus can be used and carried in a variety of ways. In its smallest avatar, the entire instrument measures just 75mm or less than 3 inches long and, when expanded, becomes a 115mm long instrument with which you can write comfortably and efficiently. The Transforming Pen & Stylus set is made up of 3 machined metal parts that can be easily taken apart for maintenance, as well as a replaceable ballpoint pen refill and a fiber tipped stylus that can also be replaced.
10. The co-box
Meet the Co-Box, an electric pencil sharpener that’s minimalistic and geometric in design that’s a welcome addition to every design nerd’s desk. The design is a square white shape, accented by an orange circle, reminiscent of the button we’d see on our Braun machines. The circle also serves as an entry point for your pencil. The shavings are collected in a transparent box, to be disposed of at your convenience. Our 20th century’s design history is filled with iconic design moments, each of them a time when the object became a part of our daily lives, almost seamlessly – all due to nature. of their design.
