Do The Clam

The Clam

We're quite smitten with 'em. Alan Fletcher's iconic receptacle designed in 1968, fashioned from melamine and produced by Pentagram. These were later redone in plastic by Mebel. Finding the reissues isn't easy, but turning up an original set is next to impossible ...at least for those of us in the states. Unsurprisingly, we're pretty stoked to now have three Pentagram editions to call our own.

Many thanks go out to our pal Jay for recently furnishing us with two of these elusive design objects. Also, thanks to Jessyca who sold us our white specimen many months ago! 

Does anyone have an orange/yellow or blue/green Pentagram set for sale? Please get in touch, if so!
