— October 10, 2012 — Art & Design

Indeed, on a smaller scale than one might produce piles for architectural projects, these ballpoint scribblers have been made using molds and hand-poured with with concrete. Longitudinal ribbing gives the heavy-duty doodads a bit of detail and enables the user to get a good grip with his fingertips. To top off the striking industrial Concrete Rollerball Pen, the 22 Design Studio capped it with a 316 stainless steel tip and a shiny cylindrical lid.
