Frana (Italian for Landslide) is a pencil holder designed by Christophe Guberan. The purpose is to maintain visual order on the work desk and provide access to the pencil holder’s hidden contents by simply tilting it and letting its contents slide into view thus avoiding the need of flipping open any lids or panels.
