The Medusa push pin is an adorable stationery design that takes its shape inspiration from the ominous jellyfish. Unlike the jellyfish, however, the Medusa is designed to prevent users from stinging their fingers and toes with its protective marine life body.
This soft push pin moves like a jellyfish when pushed into cork boards to create a functional yet realistic ode to the marine marvel. The push pin's tentacles serve as a way to keep the user's fingers safe from the pin's pointy edge. Its squishy silicone form also keeps toes from harm if the pin rolls under a table.
Providing adequate grip with its silicone shape, Medusa's translucent material is slightly colored for a fluid visual effect.
