Stationery-ware is articulating the relationship humans have with stationery and tableware. Both families of objects co-exist on the same landscape: a table. If we were to look at how we use and relate to these two different families of objects, we will soon realise that our actions are very similar and connected. Twirling pasta with a fork is like sharpening a pencil in a pencil sharpener, while the act of erasing is somewhat similar to that of cutting a piece of steak. These semblances are not indicative of any formal relation between the objects but do share with us some quiet information on the way we behave with these tools when arranged together on the table.
