Pencil pot of the month – January 2023

After a rather long break, the pencil pot of the month category will be in use again, even if only temporarily.

Starting the pencil pots of 2023 off is a concrete pencil pot from Spanish company DOIY Design. I ordered this one from Zeitgeist London when it was on offer [1]At the time of writing this blog post it still is on offer..

This Spanish designed and Chinese made pencil pot has a slight hue of pink. I find the “stairs” of this pencil pot interesting. They can be used as pen holders to rest full length pens, but they really excel as a place to store used pencils that got shorter with time.

Be warned though if you want to use expensive pens with this pen holder: Concrete can be quite rough, so in my opinion there is a slightly increased possibility of scratching the surface of pens you store in this pen holder if you are not careful.

How I actually use it on my desk…
