Location: Kangasniemi, Finland
Design by Sami Huuskonen, Tehomet
Observing the environment is always important in creative design. Sometimes the design solution can be found as close as the designers own hand. Pencil poles were created from such a small realization. First pole type was initially created for Jyväskylä fair event to present the versatile and creative knowledge by Tehomet. After the event, some photos were seen by the architect who was designing the new school in Kangasniemi. Eventually the Pencil poles were realized in the school yard where these fit harmonically in to the environment and with the colours of schools wooden façade. In school yard Pencil poles act as a small reminder of basic things in these digital times. Sometimes even the smallest things can create something big.
