Design Torres Rodrigo, 2013
Chrome-plated zamak
Made by Alessi

Kastor: a desk pet reinterprets a classic desk typology. Kastor Pencil sharpener has been designed by Rodrigo Torres. It is poised and ready to gnaw on the tip of the pencil. The design has been studied in great detail: eyes, teeth, paws and tail all contribute to defining the animal's form. Kastor is practical and easy to use: by placing the pencil in the beaver's mouth, you can sharpen it with extreme ease thanks to the sharpener located inside. Thanks to the Sharpener's solid construction, it also makes an ideal paperweight.

Alessi was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi to produce crafted metal products for eating and drinking. In 1935, Carlo Alessi, son of Giovanni, was named chief designer. In 1945, he ascended to chief executive and designed the coffee service Bombé, an industrial piece manufactured in four sizes. That same year Carlo's younger brother, Ettore Alessi, joined the company as a technician. By the 1980s, Alberto Alessi took over the management of Alessi and launched the Alessi company into the design decade through collaborations with designers such as Philippe Starck and his playful three-legged Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
