Pencil Block 2 - Stationary Organiser
Desktopstationary organiser constructed from lasercut profiles of wastecardboard. The cardboard is from Heineken beer packaging. Profiles are bonded together to form a solid block, in whichpencils or pens can rest.
This is are-take of one of my previous designs which is a desktop organiser which Icreated from a discarded block of wood found in the workshop, into which holeswere drilled. The newdesign is similar in form and dimension to the initial pencilblock, however thematerial from which the desktop organiser is created is different. It iscreated from many laser cut profiles cut from discarded cardboard packagingbonded together to form a solid block. The cardboard packaging utilised in thisdesign was once utilised for freighting Heineken beer from Holland to SouthAfrica. Most of the packaging was covered with vivid three colour print of theHeineken branding, which at first glance is attractive and visually striking.Once the beer reached the liquor store, the packaging was then set aside, readyfor disposal. Through the re-implementation of this waste material, with amanufacturing process which manipulates the material rather than recycling thematerial, a usable product is created which effectively solves the problem of acluttered desktop.
