Design in Italy in critical times

Ex.2 pen holder
Alessandro Gnocchi

A hyper-ordinary object created purely as an exercise and not in response to a specific request. A pen holder for creative individuals that always use the same pens. Lifting it by the handle the pens naturally slide on the paper. Ex.I pen holder is the result of an exercise that moves from timeless topics.

icon-archi Alessandro Gnocchi attended Industrial Design courses in Milan. After a few years working with milanese design establishments started his own practice focusing on furniture and consumer products.
