Cut/Once re-enchants the humble, wooden ruler. Instead of an object of mere utility that lives in a drawer, it now is an object of beauty that lives atop the desk. It literally turns the conventional ruler upside-down by hiding the markings which are typically top-side.
Cut/Once not only functions as a ruler, but also as a pen tray or a paperweight. It is more functional, more beautiful, more ergonomic, and more meaningful.
“Measure twice. Cut once.”
Inspired by the carpenter’s adage, it appears as a “cut-off” of wooden molding to remind us of the mindfulness necessary for good craftsmanship. The graphics too are slightly truncated, reflecting again the hazard of haste and carelessness.
