The designers of Buenos Aires-based Laboratori have created this cool Arbol — a pine tree-shaped pencil holder crafted from locally sourced pruning wood. Measuring 7 inches high, the object takes on fun shapes as it gets used, adding a charming aesthetic to any drab workplace surface. By using sustainable ash and oriental plane, woodworkers Gonzalo Arbutti and Matias Resich’s meet their aim of creating simple, ethical objects from eco-friendly materials. The Arbol pencil holder can be purchased all over the globe, and sells at shops such as France’s Mon Petit Art, Italy’s Fabriano Boutique, New York’s Moma Store and Buenos Aires’ Tienda Malba.
