This adorable beaver shaped desk buddy is the epitome of cute pencil sharpeners. Created by Rodrigo Torres Kasto for Italian company Alessi and showcased at the Maison et Objet 2013 design event; this design is chrome plated and also serves as a paper-weight. The desk buddy plays on Alessis quirky sensibility not to mention the fun involved in feeding a little beaver a wooden pencil.

The design is chic enough to decorate even the most modern of offices or anyone looking to add a bit of fun to their home-office. This is just one of the many new designs being showcased at the Maison et Objet 2013 show in Paris alongside the best in fashion design, interiors, decoration and home designs and inspirations from around the world.
