The designers of the Brockhaus Pen2 want you to glance at this product and see a minimalist pen holder. The clean and slick look of the desktop accessory misleads the eye into thinking that it's a much simpler object than it truly is.
Christopher Prenzel, Julian Schwarze and Miriam Schmitt collaborated on this set of multimedia tool. They were originally intended as a concept for enhancing the experience of working with Brockhaus encyclopaedias with an engaging interactive element. The primary implement relays information wirelessly between the pen holder hub and your computer while it reads from a book. The cup serves as a speaker and the Brockhaus Pen2 syncs with your laptop, tablet, TV or printer to perform all sorts of tasks and translate data into all different media.
