Best Friend Pencil Holder
Default Title -
NOUN is the umbrella in which I design under. It is the idea of being aware that the person is being influenced by the place they inhabit. A place not defined by walls and ceilings but the things he or she chooses to surround themselves with. By being aware of the objects that surround us, we can manipulate them for our own happiness and well being. It is hyper awareness for hyper contentedness.
With those lens’ I thought of objects one typically uses in a working environment. I realize many of these objects are approached in a very pragmatic way. If you walk into any Office Depot you instantly feel the cold and dryness of their interior and products. Most of these products lack a human element that can be very beneficial in aspects of productivity and perception in the work environment. The introduction of wood brings warmth for the owner in the world of plastic and metal office supplies.
The final product is the Best Friend Pencil Holder. Giving or sharing food to any pet is a natural way to form a relationship. That initial sense of positivity and warmth attracted me to the objects general form. I lathed, sanded and finished the wood to have it fully hand crafted. From the lathing process I designed an incorporated shallow dish for your various accessories. The dish can be used as a homebase for your essentials; whether that be your post-it notes for brainstorming or your chapstick for those cold and dry winters. When the dish is not in use, you can recognize its very haptic surface. It’s smooth and curvaceous form is subtle but enough to almost make you want to pet the object. It sits obediently on your desk and holds your pencil like your dog holding your morning newspaper in his mouth.
In consequence, I propose to uplift the tone of the typical work environment through very human materials, forms and stories. My intention is to bring joy, delight and subconscious positivity to everyone's object ecosystem and thus everyone's life.
