Paper Knife


Youhei Ohki, Japan

Red Dot
Birdie is a unique tool for opening letters. With the abstracted form of a bird, the “body” can be comfortably held, while the pointed edge of the tail is used to open envelopes. The dynamically curved paper knife is made of metal and available in a variety of colours. When not in use, Birdie simply looks good on the desk or on the shelf.

Statement by the jury

»The paper knife impresses due to its intuitive handling and the playful appearance, which turn it into an exclusive accessory.«
