Empty Bamboo Stationary Set by Yu Jian

View all 11 Photos

Using the hollow stem of bamboo to carve a flute isn’t unusual, but artist Yu Jian pushes the possibilities with his stationary set, Empty Bamboo. The assortment of useful office desk supplies form a clever set that features both the natural texture and look of bamboo while paired with metal finishes. The cylinder of the bamboo is preserved in the USB hub, with silver accents around each port, while the mechanism of the stapler is hidden under the turtle-shell cover of bamboo. All of the pieces are stamped with the stylized name of the collection for an extra flair.
