The Bre & Co. Origami Pen combines beauty and functionality in a sleek and geometric design. The bead-blasted stainless steel feels great in the pocket as well as in the hand and allows for a smooth grip and effortless use. The weight of the pen contributes to an overall sensation of solidity and can help the user write more smoothly. The Bre & Co. Origami Pen finds inspiration in the folded paper shapes of super cars of the 1980s, Japanese folded paper, and the triangles that make up modern digital model designs. Made of 316L stainless steel the Bre & Co. Origami Pen is made to last lifetimes and could also be used to break the windows out if the owner is ever in the position of being in a car sinking into water. The pen can be personalized with a three letter laser-engraved monogram above the ergonomic finger rest.
Bre & Co. Origami Teapot | $320
Available at bre.co
The Bre & Co. Origami Teapot is an elegant faceted design that looks delicate enough to truly be folded out of paper and the facets appear diamond-like when held up to the light. This teapot was traditionally slip cast and laboriously finished by hand locally by a Brooklyn ceramic artist, Michiko Shimada. The initial design and model were designed in CAD and then 3D printed by Bre & Co. It is made out of black porcelain and glazed with a food-safe and lead-free clear glaze on the interior, leaving the exterior raw black porcelain. The Bre & Co. Origami Teapot holds 4 cups of liquid.
