BicTools Pen Multi-Tools

Dec 6, 2017

For most of us, an empty Bic pen is little more than trash that hasn’t been thrown out yet. But for Spanish product designer Juan Carlos Fanes? He sees a tool that hasn’t been used to its fullest potential.

In anticipation of International Design Week of Milan, Fanes painted a simple set of Bic pens with metallic paint and fitted them with a set of plastic attachments he built himself. Those basic add-ons transform the dollar-store pens into a precision knife, folder, ruler, compass, and calligraphy tool. As of right now, this project is little more than a concept being shown around Spain, but with any luck Fanes will either sell the plastic attachments online or at the very least make the plans available for making with a 3D printer.
