When we think of a mechanical pencil, the image is a hexagonal black tube with a colored clip and a bright white eraser. It’s what we grew up with, and it’s what we know. But PENXO changes everything with a 2mm pencil that’s much more in line with our matured design sensibilities and minimalistic tastes. Each “2mm lead holder pencil” is precision milled from a single block of aircraft grade aluminum for a durable, unibody writing tool. Push your thumb or finger down near the tip to split the two halves and activate the quick lead release–kind of like a custom pair of tweezers that holds lead in the middle. This design also makes it incredibly easy to switch colors, view the lead hardness and see how much writing/drafting/designing you can do before you’re out.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
