Kastor Pencil Sharpner

Designed by:  Rodrigo Torres
Manufactured by:  Alessi

Kastor: a desk pet reinterprets a classic desk typology. Pencil sharpener in chrome-plated zamak. The Pencil sharpener Kastor has been designed by Rodrigo Torres. Kastor is poised and ready to gnaw on the tip of the pencil. The design has been studied in great detail: eyes, teeth, paws and tail all contribute to defining the animal’s form. Kastor is practical and easy to use: by placing the pencil in the beaver’s mouth, you can sharpen it with extreme ease thanks to the sharpener located inside. Thanks to the Sharpener’s solid construction, it also makes an ideal paperweight.  Manufactured by Alessi.

Alessi

Founded in 1921, Alessi is one of Italy’s leading manufacturers of home accessories, collaborating with designers and architects to create functional objects that are designed to delight and often challenge preconceived notions of how an object can look. Alessi began as a producer of brass and nickel sheet metal and by the 1950s had repositioned itself as a specialist in manipulating stainless steel. By the 1970s and 1980s, Alessi was collaborating with Ettore Sottsass, Aldo Rossi, Achille Castiglioni, Michael Graves, Phillipe Starck, and Richard Sapper – creating design icons that are still produced today.  Today Alessi works with hundreds of artists, industrial designers, and architects to create its core collection – flatware, dinnerware, glassware, cookware, office, clocks, watches, and virtually every type of tabletop or kitchen accessory imaginable. Supplementing its vast core offering, Alessi presents two seasonal collections every year that highlight new designers and typologies. Alessi’s designs are included in the permanent collections of museums worldwide. Switch Modern not only shows well over 1,000 Alessi designs on our website, we also have the same commitment to stocking and presentation in our large Alessi-branded store in Atlanta.
