The winner of the 2009 id Design Awards was Ryoji Takahashi who created this awesome hand-held paper shredder. The Paper-Pipe Shredder (which is the name of this unique device) is small enough to quaintly rest on any desk or be carried around discreetly in your bag should you need to immediately shred any incriminating evidence. In the past paper shredders have been known to be big, bulky and ugly.
Takahashi’s ingenious hand-held paper shredder can help you not only to save on your electricity bill, but also the means to look good while shredding paper. Hopefully this winning design gets commercialized and will be available for purchase soon.
