For the assignment „Small is beautiful“ I decided to design a minimalistic and sleek pencil case, which is protecting one of a designers most important tools: pens and pencils. The production is very simple and cost efficient since it consists of only plywood (3mm) which is laser cut according to a specific pattern that makes wood bendable. This way the pencil case is both flexible and strong. The elastic serves as pencil holder but also to close the case. The organic closure is a nice contrast to the rigidity of the laser cut pattern.
