Düller’s 36-Colors Pencil Set+Sketchbook

Here’s a set of 36 colored pencils perfect for your favorite creative-type.

New design Japanese collective IDEA Idea partnered with an old school German art supply firm to create Düller. The mission: Combining Japanese notions of harmony with the German penchant for methodology. There’s parallel symmetry in the same-sized pencil box and sketchbook, and the box and book cover are made from recycled paper (harmony with Mother Earth!). Perfect for the artist or architect or design-loving doodler. The paper is specially crafted for colored pencils. There are 36 colors in this pencil box: red, orange, pink, light blue, white, yellow, yellow-green, green, purple, blue, black, brown, carnelian, vermilion, grey, pale orange, chrome yellow, ultramarine, deep green, Van Dyke brown, magenta, gold, silver, Prussian blue, rose red, sky blue, lemon yellow, emerald green, mandarin orange, wisteria violet, lilac, olive green, peacock blue, leaf green and reddish brown.

Luxury pens and fancy mechanical pencils? Pffft. Kick it old school style with this pencil designed by Conrad Gessner over 400 years ago. Did you get that, 400 years ago? It’s hand-made from turned cherry wood and will set you back a mere £21.

What frivolity is this, you say? It’s a Bic pen with a real ostrich or goose feather, perfect for those times when you need a bit of over-the-top flourish in signing important documents (mortgage, birth, divorce papers, etc.)…

DBA Pen

Maybe you’ve seen this already, maybe you haven’t. Either way, it’s still the only 98% biodegradable pen in the world. The body is composed of bio-plastic, the ink reservoir from biodegradable fiber, and the ink itself is ACMI certified non-toxic. Not enough for you? Well, it’s also produced at a wind-powered facility in the US, so that should be enough to impress.

Designed to decompose in a compost facility within 180 days.

Messograf

Whoa, check out the new Theo site, the little brother/alter ego of Thorsten van Elten. It’s chock full of interesting objects for sale and the website is a sight for sore eyes, let me tell you. In a world of online shops with blaring graphics and flashing lights, it’s refreshing to see the fuss eliminated. This Messograf Pen caught my eye; it’s a caliper rule, tire tread gauge, ruler and pen all in one.

Parafernalia Falter 2D Designer Pen

Otherwise known as ‘the pen that you make’, this pen is handmade out of industrial steel. The snap apart template includes elements to make a ball point pen, stand and mini ruler. Now, you ask, why in the world would you pay $40 for a pen that you have to make when there’s a dozen perfectly good bic pens at your disposal? Good question. For the tinkering, I suppose, or for the novelty. I found more pics and info at Visual Streak, if you’re interested.

5″ l x .5″ w x .5 h

TelePen

Say goodbye to being pen-less with this on your keychain. (However, it might be pointed out that you’d still have to search around for your keys to get to the pen. Also, if you want to see the pen ‘in action’ there’s a dumb video showing just how convenient it can be.)

The ultra-compact TelePen is a handy collapsible pen that attaches to your keychain. Weighing less than an ounce and measuring less than two inches, you’ll hardly notice the diminutive telescoping pen dangling from your keyring.But the TelePen is there when you need it, expanding to nearly the length of a standard pen. Its tough stainless steel exterior protects it from the elements. Includes three black ink refills.

Dimensions: 2″ when collapsed, 4.625″ when extended

Pocket Clip Pencil

Hmm, yes, quite clever, but I think it would be cleverer if it came with some sort of cap so that you won’t get pencil marks everywhere. Although, you could just use a bic pen cap or something similar.

Possibly the worlds cleverest pencil, handmade in east London. Each white pencil has a clip carved into it, so that it can be attached to pockets, satchels and book covers just like a biro. It comes packaged on a coloured card and we think it’s a classic in the making!

Pen Loop – Set of 2

This would be extremely handy to have for any notebook/schedule where you need a writing instrument close at hand. I’m sure you’ve experienced the frustration of losing your pen/pencil in your bag, so just imagine how nice it would be to have it right where you need it.

“It’s self adhesive, so you can stick it to the back cover of any notebook, calendar, planner or address book. The loop is elastic. Adhesive is permanent. The adhesive portion measures 1.5 x 1.5 inches; the actual loop is approximately 5/8 inch wide x 3/4 inch high.”
