One glance at the Tiny City Collection, a set of desk accessories, and a person will probably mistake the material for concrete. The familiar house shapes and the grey color would trick just about anyone. Yet in reality, the Tiny City Collection is made out of a mix of cement and silicone, which gives the objects a soft, malleable feel. The texture, however, is still rough.
Designed by TripleLiving, a studio based in Taiwan, the Tiny City Collection is simple and chic, bringing a playful bit of industrial edge to workspaces and offices. It is comprised of a variety of holders for pencils, paper clips and more. Design Milk writes, "The purpose behind their design is to connect product and living in a harmonious way."
