Jac Zagoory

As an artist, Jac Zagoory revels in the rare and unique, creating desktop accessories with a new dimension of form and grace. Educated in jewelry design and fabrication at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Zagoory found early inspiration as a metal sculptor applying essential elements of design to his creations. After spending a year in the Far East and Europe, he began his "cylindrical obsession" with pens.

Realizing the growing need for desk accessories that not only created order but also highlighted the individual, the artist began designing an extensive assortment of desk accessories that exist as art in and of themselves. With his vision, the office, the home and the desk have become places where great beauty melds with function. collection

    Bicycle Lock NOT Attached to Pen Holder

        Comments about BICYCLE DESKTOP STAND WITH PEN:

        This is a nice item, however, the picture advertizes the bicycle lock is attached to the bicycle AND the pen holder but the product shipped out only has the bicycle lock attached to the bicycle and is flapping around.

        Other than the false advertising of the bicycle lock, it's a decent product. I'm just highly disappointed that the two times it was shipped to me it was incorrect even after specifically stating the bicycle lock needed to be attached to the pen holder.

        Service and delivery comments:

        They did a great job with the returns and delivery.

                  This was bought as a Christmas gift for our son-in-law who is an avid bike rider. He really thought it was awesome and couldn't wait to put on his work desk to show it off.

                    We're big fans of bicycle-themed goods, so when we saw this creative pen and sculpture combo, we had to take a closer look. Do you know a cyclist who would love to take this design for a spin?

                    love the bike pen stand but dont like the pen. this style of pen is usually uncomfortable to write with due to it being thin and slick.

                    Cute idea but the proportions are awkward.

                    Most of your products have a more clear link between the shapes. The large pen with small bicycle is a little off.

                    pen doesn't look comfortable to hold, the proportion is way off

                    Unlike others,I think it's great that the bike is so small as it takes up little desk space. However, it would be more versatile if it could be a holder for most any pen.

                    It's not very creative.

                    Speaking as a senior, I think pen sets are pretty "old school."

                    I like the bike -- but I don't like the pen. I would never write with a pen like that. Would be so much better if it was a pen stand without the pen, that way you could put whatever pen you wanted to with it.

                    I think the pen could be more interesting.

                    I like the design, but it is not clear if the pen is included. If so, the comfort factor and ability to get refills would be considerations, and if not, the ability to use it with a variety of pens would be critical.

                    this is cute for bike lovers but the bike should be a little bigger; both from an aesthetic perspective and from a functional perspective.

                    While I know there will be fans of riding who will love this, all I can see is me knocking this over on my desk and spilling things.

                    Very cute - for myself and all of my cycling friends, but I would be a bit curious how much something like this is going to go for pricewise. I would have my limits.

                    Cute concept but looks really awkward...why not make the bike bigger and have the pen be the crossbar...it could slide in and out...then I'm in :)

                    I can easily see the little bicycle breaking off and the whole piece looks out of balance. How on Earth does it stand up.
