The Taipei-based firm 22Studio has designed a range of stationery made predominantly from concrete. Their newest pieces include a set of functional desk accessories that resemble miniature concrete sculptures.
The series includes a desk pen, cardholder, tape dispenser, and pen holder, each employing basic geometric shapes stacked on top or beside one another. These shapes “are subtly blended together to present a sculptural yet elegant gesture,” explains the studio. “Inspired by the straightforward, sublime spirit of urban architecture”, 22Design aims to create products with an interplay between materials, texture, and style. “All our products are handcrafted, and honed through hands-on experimentation into authentic, daring design.”
