Chalk Drawers by Nikolas Bentel

These fun architectural drawing tools are specially designed to make dots, circles or straight lines, creating original patterns that are geometrically precise.

Each drawer is designed on a quinary number system, which allows them to be used as an accurate drawing instrument for any metric system. And because they draw five lines at once, the toys can also be used to draw musical staff lines!

Chalk is a widely available material that has been in use for 1,000s of years. Just about every shape and use has been tried with chalk. In order to reimagine an original use, I had to reimagine its structure through modern manufacturing techniques, such as 3d printing. After going through many iterations, I finally came to these three designs.

I grew up in a family of architects. Bringing inspiration from his childhood, Chalk Drawers are toys designed with young architects and designers in mind.
