walnut letter opener designed by Andrea Kuo, that deals with the following everyday problem in a beautiful way:

“We often get anxious about the content in our letters when we receive them, and naturally we tend to tear them apart with our own hands, occassionally running our fingers like a blade through the end of the envelope. Sometimes, we get paper cuts on our fingers, but ironically, we use our fingers to cut paper as well.”

Rajni Perera is a Sri-Lankan artist who lives and works in Toronto, Canada. Her bold and colourful paintings are inspired by a number of influences including Rajput miniaturism, comics, cartoons, textile patterns, Ukiyo-e block prints, paleontology, astronomy and geometry. She describes her work as “spiritual and whimsical, a pooja (religious ritual) and a porno at the same time”.
