Quirky (http://www.quirky.com) has released Pen Zen, a community-designed storage unit for pens, pencils, highlighters, and other office supplies. It’s now available for pre-order for US$26.

You can position your Pen Zen horizontally with the items sticking out of the top, or stand it upright with the items sticking out of the ends. It’s your call — choose the arrangement that suits you best.

Pen Zen has a glossy white plastic exterior with rubber extrusions that act as magic fingers to hold your items in place. The product measures 7.5 x 2.5 x 3.0 inches.

Pen Zen is the 27th product designed and developed by the Quirky community since Quirky’s launch on June 2, 2009. Each week, Quirky’s community collaborates to select and produce one new product idea.
