Product designer Ryosuke Harashima created this tactile wooden egg embedded with a magnet. When you dip the egg into your carton of paperclips it comes out looking like and egg sitting in a nest. Gorgeous and clever!

The eggs were hand-made out of Keyaki wood in Yamanaka, Japan by wood turning craftsmen.
