Nikolas Bentel Reimagines the Way People Use Chalk for Drawing

The Chalk Drawers is a collection of extravagantly shaped chalk that does not more than just create new ways of using the traditional drawing tool—it also pushes the boundaries of understanding while reformating the medium to broaden its scope. Nikolas Bentel conducted numerous experiments until he finally arrived at three successfully prototyped designs that boast circles, dots and lines.

The architecturally inspired shaped chalk is created with a 3D printing procedure; the offerings create mesmerizing patterns. This new way of using an old form of drawing has the potential to spark a child's imagination and provides stress relief for adults. From creating landscapes on the sidewalk to decorating one's walls with an abstract narrative, the 3D-printed shaped chalk is a handy toy and design tool.
