Whim: Luxury & Pencils

, 4 May 2010

Packaging for a traditional set of HB pencils taken to the extreme. A project by Swann Marchon a third year student of School Arts in Geneva…

Transforming something so banal but iconic as a collection of those 12 HB pencils we’ve all used being kids into a Luxury product is just a matter of adding stylized lines & minimalistic design.

If for a Faber Castell box of 12 8B – 2H pencils you have to pay around 12€…. how much would you be ready to pay for this new packaging?

“A packaging concept for HB pencils which doubles as a container and is intended to be displayed on ones’ desk”.
