Color Gem Crayons
Draw from nature, as if you picked up a rock and started coloring. Colorgem is a set of mineral-like crayons exploring the metaphor and satisfaction of releasing colors directly from a burnt chalk, an apple, or granites and stones.
Studio Unto has transformed the crayon block into a process similar to rock erosion; every sign of press, indent and dulled corner instruments the flow of the user's artistic footprints.
Comes in a set of 4 colors: Gold Quartz, Emerald Granite, Red Marble, and Mother of Pearl
Made in Taiwan by Studio Unto
Longlisted for Dezeen Awards 2020
Studio Unto was founded in 2019. Their work draws a close lens on nature, using the significance of objects as cultural conduits, and reintroducing things in a way that we often might otherwise oversee.
Their work examines the relationship between people and their surroundings including the historical, political and social forces that have shaped our environment. Unto seeks to rebuild the connection with everyday objects, intending to bring new dialogue and perspective into this rapidly changing world.
