PENS+TRAW 'Why pen straight?'
왜 팬은 곧나
Since 2012, 'Why pen straight?' has been being an important question of my design.
In 2017, this idea has been finally developed.
I have been being interested in the new concept of the most minimalist pen.
The beginning was the curiosity about 'straw'. Straw is a very interesting object designed. My idea for straw was divided into 2 paths.
The first idea was about a pen. And the later idea was about 'chopsticks = straw'. (2013->E.E.J)
I flashed one idea 'why pen straight?'. I immediately made various ideas about PENS+TRAW from 'why pen straight?'.
And I had many agonies to finish the design.
One of these ideas, there is 'pen = straw'.
And I developed this idea to capsule pen for the most minimalistic.
I developed the capsule pen to be more concrete.
With a sustainable idea, I finished my capsule pen design. On the desk, there are too many pens. Almost is disposed of uselessly not being used enough. So I designed like a capsule package of medicine. The package of the pen is used by extracting a new capsule when it is empty.
So we can reduce wasting and mess on the desk. To grab this pen well, this length of the pen was designed like half of the index finger and enough to grab. A straw makes the pen most minimalist when the pen is inserted into an un-using straw.
