Clean design, premium materials. A unique set of drawing tools for your work and inspiration. Now available in walnut, maple, and black anodized aluminum.
Draw a Little Inspiration
Every desk gets cluttered. We designed drawing tools that wouldn’t add to that clutter, that would instead be worth intentionally leaving out on display. Whether you’re looking at them or working with them they’re designed to help your workflow.

Inspired by the curves and chamfers in our other products, we aimed for desk tools with a similar soul.

Made the Hard Way
Most drawing tools are punched from a flat sheet of metal or plastic. It gets the job done, but we wanted to create something more substantial. Our hardwood measuring tools are made by laminating solid wood and aluminum together, and then machining the whole thing to give it a unique, three-dimensional shape. The metal variant is machined from a solid block of aluminum. It’s a much harder process, but the sculptural outcome is worth it.

"Machining allowed us to take the form into vertical dimensions that aren’t possible otherwise."

Wonderful to (Be)Hold
They fit nicely into your hands. The curves and chamfers are organic. They’re easy to manipulate. The numberless design keeps the surface clean and simple, with unique dots to mark often used measurements.

Shape Up
Each of the three simple shapes is available separately, for your desk or workspace.
Three to Tango
The ruler, protractor and triangle were designed together, each informing the next. Balance, symmetry, completeness—all achieved with the set.
