About

MINIMALIST DESIGN

Pen Comet is one of the most minimalist and elegant pens ever designed. Re-thinking the traditional pen in every way, the Pen Comet features an all magnetic cap connection at both ends and a special surface treatment that combines friction and texture to create an ideal, seamless writing experience. 

Pen Comet is precisely machined out of space-grade aluminum that is anodized in three colors: space grey, gold, and black. An exclusive pen base made of a solid piece of 6000 series aluminum is also available at certain reward levels.

Mechanism

The magnetic cap attracts the metal pen tip and protects it when not in use. This magnetic force is meticulously calculated so that the cap stays on when being transported and effortlessly removed when needed.

Background

REVOL is a design studio based in Los Angeles, California. The studio is run by two designers trained as architects. The cross-disciplinary background influences REVOL’s design philosophy and instills a vibrant culture to REVOL’s practice. 

REVOL takes inspiration from everyday objects and transforms them into pieces that are thoughtfully designed and meticulously engineered. We touch, feel and investigate the strengths and weaknesses of the materials. We study the fundamentals of how things are crafted and through which we explore the improved ways of making things. 

It’s our relentless attention to detail that makes REVOL products inspiring. If that resonates with you, we think you’ll enjoy having them in your life too.

Risks and challenges

After over a year of designing, developing, and extensive testing, we are finally capable of providing a high-quality product. Through this process, we are able to fix every connection problem and refine every design detail. The pen is now ready for mass production, and we have secured an experienced manufacturer that specializes in making precise metal components.

Our main challenge is to raise enough funding to place our first production of this pen. Your help is essential for the production of this unprecedented product. We look forward to bringing this very special pen to you!

Thanks for all the support! We are excited to create this pen for you, the Kickstarter community!
