This ruler by E-Y products is made from a light resin and ebony combination, so that two intermingling materials create the look of a mountain range. It is 19cm in length x 3.5 cm in width, and weighs a satisfying 13g.
With this ruler E-Y are attempting to add beauty to everyday stationery. It is gracefully presented in its own cardboard case, and has the air of a piece of jewellery more than something which belongs in a pencil case. However, the blend of functionality and aesthetic design in this product makes it something that will resonate with anyone who appreciates how exceptional everyday objects can be.
Please beware that each one of these rulers are unique and as a result the resin and ebony pattern can slightly vary.
E-Y Products are a Chinese design company who are re-inventing everyday items into beautiful objects. They chose their name because the letters “E” and “Y” have a close phonetic similarity with the Chinese word for “Surprise”, and it is easy to see why this name describes their products so well.
E-Y designs turn objects which might easily be seen as benign occurrences in our daily lives (pens, rulers etc.) into objects which inspire us and become something to be showcased instead.
Founders Jerry Huang and Eva Zhou are graduates from the Raffles Design Institute, and founded E-Y Products in the year 2010 as a brand of their Dongwest Design Studio. With E-Y Huang and Zhou want to give people a pleasant surprise, and to make them think again about tradition.They strive to create objects which tap into the excitement of unexpected beauty.
