This imaginative update of the humble desk pen holder is from London based designer Oscar Diaz. As a keen writer and illustrator I often find that my pencil sharpener, eraser and paper-clips get lost amongst all my pens in my old pen pots; Diaz’s design combats this problem by placing the pen positions around the central area, which is perfect for any other small items that may be on my desk.

The silicone made Pen Pan keeps all pens upright and means they are readily accessible to the busy artist or designer. The design is such that you do not need to upend the holder in order to fish out a paper clip or drawing pin. Very handy!
