The Phoenix Feather Pen is an item that will certainly bring some excitement to your desk. Sure to overpower the branded handout writing utensils that have been accumulating in your pen holder, this series of unique scribblers may actually inspire some creativity in your work.

Designed by Minna and Tymote and manufactured by Monopuri, the $30 implements begin as genuine feathers before they're treated to acrylic and ink to jazz them up. The creatives behind their abstract appearances took from artists like Andy Warhol, reproducing parts of their work in vivid color on the fine hairs of the Phoenix Feather Pens. Despite the soft and spiky textures of the bird-derived plumes, the finished products exhibit extraordinarily bold effects through shapes and fine details, as well as hues.
