30 Gifts for Designers

From Personalized Fountain Pens to Quirky Caged Lamps

— December 23, 2016 — Fashion
Gifts for designers can range from products related specifically to creation, or to unique creations that designers can appreciate for their form and function.

The 'Kohezi' pen offers a truly unique design that is able to transform to suit the patterns of its users' habits. It does this through its brassy finish, which overtime gets scuffed and marked by the user's hand movements and creates its own pattern that is unique to the habits of the user.

The caged lamp designed by Matali Crasset for IKEA is a home decor item that is highly unique in its design, but that is still accessible. The product would make for an excellent gift for designers who appreciate quirky and eccentric styles.
