Calling all multi-tasking architects: Japanese architect Shigeru Ban has designed a combination rollerball pen/retractable architect’s scale for Acme studios. Made from aluminum with metric and imperial laser-etched measurements, the triangular pen can be extended to the length of a functional architect’s scale for those times when you need to quickly convey a concept or plan.
