Design and realization of a pen box as innovative product design that can also be used as a sound instrument – the Beatbox. Production in wood from certified sustainable forestry and made by mechanical work. The golden mean of functional product design and sound design: in combination with a pen the riffled surface makes the beatbox sound like a South American guiro. The smooth side made of fine mahogany wood, for example, provides the clave in the rhythm section. The magnetic clasp holds the pens in place so they can be transported safely. From a meeting to a jamsession or vice versa.
