Above: the Pencil Bench, created by U.K. design studio Boex and recently featured on Design Milk. The perch, consisting of 1,600 pink pencils positioned upside down into a slab of wood, "stemm[ed] from a single conversation to see if [the designers] could incorporate an everyday office object into a piece of furniture." Take that, Metrocard bench!
