Item Description

IconCaretDown

Funno is a pencil sharpener machined from a solid block of metal and hand polished with mirror finish in various colours. While the minimalistic design eliminates traces of this object as a tool, it has a mysterious appearance that invites viewers to touch and interact with it. Funno also works as a beautiful paperweight - a still yet dynamic sculpture on your desktop.
