Scholarly Stationery Holders

This Pencil End-Shaped Tool Cleverly Holds Pencils and Paperclips

— July 14, 2013 — Art & Design
This giant pencil end cup holds pencils and other stationery. While the top tubular compartment holds longer items, the bottom “pink eraser” part can be detached and hold smaller items like paper clips and erasers. This design by Artori design studio was inspired by the concept of getting rid of mess. Just as erasers on the back of yellow pencils clears the unwanted, this stationery holder clears the mess on your desk top by storing it all away.

You can keep this stationery holder in two separate pieces, or stack them as one. When stacked, the cute design reminds us of the days we used classic yellow pencils, before all the high-tech pencils were introduced. The design would make a fitting gift for teachers.
