Color Pencil Tamper from Budapest

Gábor and his camera man Attila visited Amsterdam on their way from Budapest to the PROBAT factory in Emmerich and even though it was somewhat late in the evening, we shared some home roasted Uganda espresso coffee ground on the COMPAK E8 and extracted on the Londinium LI-P.

Gábor brought along a pre-production tamper of the new series he is manufacturing. A true beauty. Making these is quite a delicate affair as the lathe needs to cut through a bunch of tender color pencils. The wood is fragile but  the colored pencil lead is very brittle too. For me, the very few hair sized imperfections just add to the sublime art deco elegance of the creation.

They will be available from
