This sleek mini jumbo size triangular color pencil has a larger rectangular lead that is exposed along the full length of one of the three corners of the pencil. This pencil allow a fine point to be drawn or the use of a broader side face of the lead for shading greater areas. A thin clear lacquer coat safeguards the color lead exposed along the corner edge until the pencil is sharpened.
The new design design even comes with a matching sharpener.

Concentrate design products specifically for school kids with aim to help children concentrate at school by identifying the reasons that they might be distracted, uncomfortable or unable to focus. One of their more tongue-in-cheek designs is the ‘pre-chewed’ pencil. ‘no need to spend time chewing your pencil – just get down to some concentrated thinking and who knows what you might come up with’.
I think it is not chewed enough…

Environmental art in Finland by Jonna Pohjalainen.
“I travelled to work in Pedvale with empty hands. I admired the lovely rural scene and the sunsets of Pedvale. I used local aspen in my work because of its lively forms and beautiful, grey colour. While you sharpen your pencils you can see time passing by. Colours bring joy and happiness in our everyday life. I chose a place of of my work because of the sunsets. You can sit and meditate near my work and look at the sunsets. Without sun there are no colours and life!”
