little warriors


mathias bek

Little warriors are small pencil holders, inspired by the Japanese cultural beliefs; Wa and Kawaii. Wa is an expression for “harmony” whilst Kawaii is interpreted as “cute aesthetics”. The pencil holders are created as small aesthetic warriors.

Little warriors will defend the freedom of speech, using their pencil as weapons. They are created in smoked oak with details of natural leather and brass. The materials are chosen because they age as time passes. This allows little warriors to bare the marks of their surroundings, thus increasing their imperfections.

Little Warriors will, over time, become unique characters that symbolize the struggles of life as well as its stories.
