Mateo the Bear Incorporates Youthful Nostalgia with Adult Practicality

Designed by Christian Vivanco, Mateo the Bear was inspired by all the toys and stuffed animals most people have as children that are generally left behind as we grow older.

It's such a shame that the objects we once held so dear to our hearts can be so easily disposed of as they have no room in the practical world of adulthood. This headless teddy bear design is a bridge between the two sides of life, combining a youthful playfulness that is often sorely lacking in our busy schedules, with the practicality we need and desire as responsible adults.

Mateo the Bear features a hollow body that is perfect for holding office supplies and stationery tools while its limbs are fun to contort and adjust.
