This modular pencil reduces waste & extends the life of your stationery!





When pencils are used and become short, they are usually thrown away and contribute to waste. The eraser too goes to waste just because the pencil is shorter and uncomfortable to hold even though it is not entirely useless. So how can we make the most of the entire pencil and all its parts? Meet the Loop pencil – this clever design not only makes it easier to use the pencil till the end of its life but also uses the eraser to double up as a stand to keep your desk clutter-free!

More than 14 billion pencils are created every year, which is enough to circle the earth 62 times, and 82,000 trees are cut down every year to make those 14 billion traditional wooden pencils. While they are natural and almost 100% biodegradable, doesn’t mean we can get away with wasting them just due to their design while they are still good to use and that is where Loop comes in with its nifty tweaks to the existing pencil. If pencils were a pokemon that could evolve, Loop would be its final evolution!

Loop has three parts and each has an important function to optimize the product – the pencil, the clip and the eraser. Once the pencil becomes shorter, you use the clip which acts as an extended grip and it also doubles up as an attachment so you can clip it on your documents just like a pen. The eraser doubles up as a vertical pen stand so that the desk doesn’t have a cluster of pencils and you can easily find one that belongs to you. Loop’s simple yet modular design makes it effective, reduces waste, and maximizes the use of the product.

The idea was to extend the life of pencils and erasers but also make them more functional (and fun!). Loop believes that with one more rotation of using the pencil, you can decrease waste and make the most of existing stationery. Since pencils are made of wood and the raw materials come from forests, we should be mindful about using them fully and do our part in saving trees through small actions. You can freely combine different forms through the “one turn, one change” method and show more love to the environment as a stationery lover!

Sculpted into a shape that permits ergonomic usability and comfort, the iPad Pro Stand from Yohann boasts a final form that allows for multi-angled usage, achieved by reducing the light, thin profile to its bare necessities.

Keeping track of all of our smart electronics and their accessories can get messy. Depending on what you use them for, smart appliances guide us through the week and keep us on top of our personal and work-related agendas. 2016’s Apple Pencil, for one, was designed for iPad Pro but has a tendency of getting lost. Yohann, a sustainable brand passionate about crafting wooden Apple accessories, created a wooden iPad Pro Stand with a built-in Apple Pencil holder so there will always be a place to store it.

Stationery in general gets lost all the time. Our favorite pens fall into hard-to-reach cracks and our pencils roll under our beds, never to be seen again. The iPad Pro Stand from Yohann features an exact slot for your Apple Pencil to slink into when not in use.

The secure lip allows the iPad Pro to remain stationary on the stand. The Apple Pencil holder features magnetic ends to ensure secure storage and that you’ll never lose your Apple Pencil again. The stand itself is handcrafted from a single piece of wood for a solid and durable structure that ages well and stands the test of time. The iPad Pro stand features a winged back for multi-angled use.

Navigating our library of smart electronics and accessories can become as overwhelming as managing our photo library. To help declutter our desks of wires and gadgets, Yohann crafted the iPad Pro Stand with a built-in Apple Pencil holder.

Following their handcrafted and high-quality design process, Yohann built the stand to be ergonomic, intuitive, and long-lasting. Illustrators and graphic designers can draw on their iPad Pros using the stand as a bolstered. Best of all, we love how the magnetic Apple Pencil holder snaps onto place and that’s a feature we’ll be toying with it for a while!

This intuitive wooden pen holder solves cleanup woes on messy art days and is designed to last a lifetime!

Painting gets messy, especially when you have kids. Without regard for the new floor carpet or optic white-stained china cabinet, the whole room is their canvas when kids paint. Then there’s the dreaded clean-up of all the scattered colored pencils and paintbrushes. Setting out to create a tidy solution for those memorable, but messy paint-filled afternoons, Architect Mum, a child care accessory design studio, developed the Creative Cube, a multifunctional pen holder that can last a lifetime.

Creative Cube was inspired by Architect Mum founder Caro’s own daughter. Caro describes, “After she had painted, it was a hassle for her to tidy up the pens, too…when she was painting with water, it also happened quite often that the water glass tipped over in the creative process. I knew we needed a pen holder that would solve our problems, but I didn’t want a plastic red ladybug in our home.” Averting the tempting lure of weird, anthropomorphic plastic home accessories, Caro gave Creative Cube a wooden construction to exude a minimalist warmth and a timeless, neutral design so the product can be carried down for generations. Eighteen pen slots and a single paintbrush holder fill out the sides of Creative Cube with an additional chamber to place paint water cups stationed on the top of Creative Cube.

Manufactured in southern Germany, Creative Cube is constructed from sycamore wood and coated in linoleum for added protection. Developed to be a lifetime product, Creative Cube is doubly covered with natural linseed oil to stand the test of time and remain resistant against any potential water damage. Since wood is a natural product, Caro suggests keeping your Creative Cube out of direct sunlight to avoid any yellowing or grain fluctuations.

Designer: Architect Mum

Nine pen slots fill out each side of Creative Cube, with additional chambers for a paintbrush and water cup.

Kids can clean up their workstations with ease following paint activities and water coloring.

With an intuitive design, kids can pull their favorite colored pens from Creative Cube and put them right back when they’re done.

With wide slots, Creative Cube can hold multiple slim pencils in one holder.

This all-metal pencil holder will extend the life of your pencils and last generations




Turn your pencil stub into a gloriously fine writing instrument.

Meet the Ferrule, probably the most significant improvement to wooden pencils since they started putting erasers on the opposite end. The Ferrule is a brass pencil enclosure and extender. It upgrades the feeling of using a tiny, frail wooden pencil by enclosing it in a hexagonal brass body that gives you confident strokes, thanks to its weight, and a much more premium writing and drawing experience.

The Ferrule works with all standard pencils (7-8mm in width) up to 120mm in length. Designed to function as a high-end pencil sleeve, the Ferrule works with short pencil stubs too, giving you a consistent premium writing experience throughout. It opens and closes with a simple twisting action, allowing you to lock or release the pencil within with a satisfying click. The opposite end has a holder for erasers too, upgrading your entire writing experience by turning the humble wooden pencil into an incredibly luxurious and premium writing/sketching experience.

The body of the pencil holder comes intricately machined out of brass, with an innovative clutch mechanism that tightly grips the pencil. Designed by the fine folks at Makers Cabinet (who also created the Iris circle-master, and the Stria ruler), the Ferrule comes after months of design iterations focusing on finding that perfect balance between eye-catching form and exquisite function. The result is a brass instrument that transitions from a cylindrical profile to a hexagonal one, creating visual drama while also ensuring the pencil doesn’t roll around on your table. At 45 grams, it has just the right amount of weight to help you draw or write confidently. While being slim enough to fit right inside your stationery kit or even your backpack, the Ferrule is the kind of pencil-holder you’d want to show off, hence the presence of a pocket-clip that lets you keep your pencil close to your chest, letting you easily access it while also allowing you to carry it with pride, like the luxury EDC it is. Each Ferrule ships with 6 cedar pencils (3 HB and 3 2B) and 3 eraser-sticks that fix right on top. As an add-on, you can even grab the Ferrule Sheath, a cover-case made from Badalassi Carlo leather, a set of slick-grey notebooks courtesy of London-based stationery brand Mark + Fold. To complete the premium experience, however, I’d suggest pairing the Ferrule with Makers Cabinet’s HØVEL sharpener, a beautifully complementary brass sharpener inspired by traditional woodworking tools.

Architecture meets stationery in this thatched roof pencil stand – the perfectly minimal desk accessory!

Got bored of the same old way of keeping writing instruments, business cards, or paper clips on your desk? Want a change from the age-old method of storing them in a stand or simply in the desk drawer? Then it’s time to make a refreshing shift to the very idea of having a small roofed house that displays your pencils and organizes your business cards, paper clips, or other small stationery desk items in the most soul-pleasing manner!

Industrial designer Jaekyoung Oh got the idea of pepping up the way we keep office supplies without losing the actual purpose and the essence. Keep enough pencils in the grooves of the (roof meant to hold the pencils/pens) and you’ll have a whole new roofed mini house on your desk. Take that obsession further and you can actually create a small town on your desk. Sounds liberating right? Other than that you can also keep the mini house minus the thatched roof to store paper clips, important business cards or other office essentials that are required on daily basis. So even a couple of these on your desk would be just right to get you into that productive working regime. After all, small things like these help you get in the zone, and perform at your best!

Alright if, I’m going way off the charts with the imagination, then to be a little subtle – the Small Town pencil and office supplies holder is a very unique way of keeping things on your work desk. It’s practical, looks good, and better than having the same boring accessories!
