KOH-I-NOOR and Friends

Erasers in different sizes, shapes, colors and brands. An object of everyday culture, which embodies transience, flexibility and correction, is contrasted with a very traditional, hard and durable material – the gemstone.
Made to be touched. When viewing and holding these objects, they are immediately provoking memories of the school erasers’ smell, feel and past times. Cut from various precious stones and thus completely deprived of their function of erasing, the objects immediately initiate the viewer’s thoughts to draw pictures in front of their inner eye. Just like their “natural” role model itself, they are table objects and hand flatterers. But some of the erasers can be also worn around your neck, as an everyday trophy.
“Ratzefummel” – the jewel from childhood.
