36 Pencils and a Plastic Connector

...and voilà, you have a bowl!

How amazingly simple and beautiful is this? This bowl is the brainchild of Dutch designer Michael Cornelissen and is a tribute to the ubiquitous hexagonal colouring pencil we've all been brought up with.

Not only beautiful, but practical. Imagine the possibilities for the overly organised (or indeed horrendously disorganised) artist, designer or writer - all your pencils arranged by colour, grade or size. Okay three possibilities, but I'm sure all you creative types could come up with a few more. And if you have no strong feelings towards the arrangements of your stationary, hey, it's a bowl, artfully arrange your fruit!

I've been thinking about how they could be displayed to wonderful effect...but I'd need more than one...and a room painted white...hope they still sell them when I get my own place!
