A range of geometric containers built around a 60mm circular footprint. The edges of the bottom container and lid are cast with chamfered edges creating the simplest of engagements between the two parts. The interior and exterior of the container have a soft, smooth shape, which contrasts with the cold hard metal. The designer achieved this using an intensive, hands-on process. They plated and hand-polished the exterior twice while hand-finishing the inner surface four times at a low temperature with stove enamel paint. Seemingly ordinary, they created this container using an extraordinary process. Not only for storing objects - Geode can also hold life’s memories.
The design for our pencil sharpener was
inspired by Japanese capsule toys aka
gashapon. The top is an integrally-formed
aluminum sharpener while its lower half is
a weighted zinc alloy. Resting on its heavy
bottom, this egg-shaped pencil sharpener can
rock around like a roly-poly toy.
