Insights on Real Boy

Duncan Shotton, the project leader of the awarded gift project Real Boy says “Pinocchio-inspired push pins designed and manufactured by young British designer Duncan Shotton. Injection-moulded in white in the UK, the pins are then hand painted to exquisite detail by Shotton himself in his recently established Tokyo Studio. Each of the beautifully packaged, x 1000 limited-edition packs of two has it's own serial number, is sold exclusively online and comes with a signed thank you note. -An example of how the application of design and fine craftsmanship can transform such a standard, accepted stationary product into an object of desire.” Learn more about this design at: https://competition.adesignaward.com/design.php?ID=27394
