Orange Aid

Modern Decor

rulerruler2We’ll admit a we were a bit flummoxed by this aluminum and leather ruler by Lee Jung Woo of Seoul-based EK Design at first. But when we realized that the flaming orange leather merely acts as a protective sheath into which the ruler can be rolled up and stored or transported, we said, why not? Alas, it’s only available in metric measurements, though an inch-based version is promised soon.ruler_o_03

    Promila,

    The leather may also help keep the rule from shifting when downwards pressure is applied.

    The leather tie for the roll is elegant, but how soon would it get lost?

      Chris, yes, good point. I’ve used many a ruler that slid all over the place at inopportune moments ;)
