Inspired by the multitude of colours of pencil shavings, this Pencil Sharpener has a shaving outlet specially designed to generate an fun experience from the simple process of pencil sharpening. Rotating a pencil through this sharpener produces a continuous, neat pencil shaving shaped in a beautiful flower form. Instead of immediately discarding the pencil shaving, one can’t help but take time to admire the colourful ring radiating from the heart of the ‘flower’, or keep it around on the desktop. This pencil sharpener reminds us to pay close attention to every small romance and every trivial but beautiful thing in everyday life.
