• Alessi Beaver Pencil Sharpener
  • Posted 22 months ago by Jack Lowe · Art & Design · 10293 Views
  • Iconic Italian design label Alessi have teamed up with artist Rodrigo Torres to create a unique take on the traditional pencil sharpener. Doubling as a paper weight, the small chrome-plated wood chewing beaver was made from the 2013 Maison & Object show in Paris and, like all other Alessi products, aims to be well designed and eccentric while remaining highly functional. No price has been announced, but look out for these in stores in the near future.
