There has always been something innately charming about ‘bamboo’. While the west might have taken up the idea of incorporating this strong and versatile natural material into its lifestyle more recently, bamboo has been an integral part of Asian culture and tradition. Yet, what Yu Jian has crafted using this flexible wood is simply remarkable. This innovative designer has taken hollowed bamboo stems of various sizes and has turned them into ten stationery objects that are both ergonomic and exquisite.
Both aesthetics and functionality have been achieved to the hilt in these designs as metal is seamlessly fused with bamboo shells to create pleasing designs. The array of ten stationery objects includes everything from USB hubs and drives to desk clocks and pencil sharpeners! The best part is that they cover a large spectrum of uses and hence make a great gift for both kids and adults alike.
While the USB drive is an obvious hit as it is one of the most beautifully crafted pen drives we have ever seen. The USB hub also makes for a nice addition to any office table or home work station. The staplers, pencil case, tape dispenser and pen holder are perfect for pretty much everyone. There is a paper clip box for all of you still dealing largely in paper and even a bamboo case ‘clip’ that stands out from the crowd. The elegant clock cased in bamboo though takes the top honors with its impressive form.
The best part about this bamboo stationery set is the fact that they simply blend with our office desks or work stations with ease. Sustainable, smart and tasteful, we sure would love to snag a couple of these ourselves. Style statement with a natural appeal!
