Pencil Icosahedron

Posted on April 2, 2010 Under Design


For some reason Michael Cornelissen’s Pencil Icosahedron really makes me smile. Reminds me of Montessori school!

With this kit, plus 30 standard-sized hexagonal pencils, you can build an icosahedron-shaped object of about 38 cm or 15 inch in diameter. Use it as a lampshade, or just have it around as a fun and educational object. Fits standard hexagonal (colour) pencils of about 7.0 mm cross-section, measured at the smallest diameter. Use that set of pencils from the bottom of your drawer, get a new set or buy separate pencils of only those colours that you like.
