Paper, pencil, repeat.

Product Design, Speculative Design

2019

Paper, pencil, repeat is a machine that produces paper-wrapped pencil using waste paper. Or, you can call it a mini pencil factory.

I started the project with an idea of wanting to design something that inspires people to think about the end of life of products.

The process of sending a piece of waste paper into the machine and turning it into a pencil is a closed loop that provides a solution for end of life problem of a piece of paper.

The goal of the project is not necessarily about trying to save the world but to think about the life cycle of products; think about the environmental, social and economic aspects of products. The project aims to provide a potential solution to the end of life of products and also to inspire people to seek other opportunities in products other than a piece of paper.
