Fraser Ross’ DIY Flatpack Pen

I can’t say it looks any easier to ship than your standard blue BIC ballpoint model, but I like designer Fraser Ross’ IKEA-inspired take on those fancy large format writing instruments. The pen arrives as a single sheet of pre-cut plywood which fits inside an A6-sized postcard envelope, making it easy to send through the mail. Assembly looks easier than a LEGO Duplo set, though the last step which involves heating the outer rubber shrinkwrap sleeve with a hairdryer, or in an oven, should probably be left to a pseudo-adult.
