This belongs to our “Workaholic” collection - pen tray.
While people spend 8hours+ in the offices, their desks are the little regime so people would decorate their desk or cubical with own style to establish their identities.
We always believe that something function and practical can also be artistic so we use concrete, something that not being paid much attention on, to create a pen tray with the wave top which pens can be separated.
This pen tray comes with grey or dark grey, the material is purely cement, no pigment is added. Also, no coating is applied but we sand it with care. We would like to keep the authentic look of the concrete.

[A little note that you may wanna know]
This item is a fair faced concrete item.
Fair faced concrete is a concrete surface that on completion of the forming process, requires no further treatment other than curing. No painting nor patching to cover up any defects. So the technique and perfect control is the key to achieve a piece of quality fair faced concrete. One need to touch and feel it in person in order to enjoy this highest level of craftsmanship.
No worries if water just splash on it, the beads turn a bit dark, after a while when the beads are dried, you can see the original color. However this means if its tea or coffee go on it then stains lasts.
Tiny little bubble is expected. For those who have concern on the bubble, then we are afraid concrete may not be your choice
For those creations solely in grey, since those are handmade and due to the characteristic of concrete, there is possibility that the grey tone may not be even.
To clean it, simply use a clean cloth with clear water, no cleansing material is needed. Kind reminder, cleansing material often with color that the color will leave the mark on the items
