Twisted Pencil by Giha Woo

Korean product designer Giha Woo manipulates colored pencils into structure-like forms called Twisted Pencil. He describes the structures as “pencil vases,” acknowledging its play on words. Because indeed, these open sided vases constructed of bent pencils are only suited to hold pencils, or other similar items. We think they’d make fun building blocks too, as a decorative element on the coffee table.
