Two graduates from the class of 2009, BA (Hons) in Design (Product), and their creation Origin, was honored by two significant international awards, Red Dot Product Design Award 2011 and Japan Good Design Award 2010.
The mixed-material ballpoint pen was a design inspired by the table leg. The leg’s simple converging shape revived the designer to explore the original meaning of a pen. On Origin, there is no pen clip that many other pens have, while it answers the need of anti-rolling and emphasizes the comfort of writing.
Pinky Wan and Paul Poon are the designers behind the award-winning product. The brand was developed under a local brand ten Design Stationery.
“We started our career here as Pinky’s final year project was found and appreciated by the brand’s founder,” Poon said. “PolyU Design provided us with a platform connecting with the design industry and we feel grateful.”
Congratulations to Pinky and Paul.
