DESIGN

The universal symbol for "Infinity" with voluptuous curves marries well into a shape that fits perfectly within the hand and is very comfortable to hold.

Infinity with cake?
Infinity with cake?

A fountain pen is one of those rare objects. It connects with us on so many levels. In our most creative mode, it is an extension of our mind which through gestures of our hand convert random thoughts into intelligible concepts, ideas or expressions.

Every time we use a writing instrument - we write code. Sometimes people understand it. Sometimes there are layers in the meaning of the words we write. Often, we give away more in the style and stroke of our writing than in the actual words themselves.

In many cultures, the written letter and word is considered "art". I take every opportunity to infuse art into everyday objects. With pens it's even more tactile sensual and very personal

MATERIALS

A solid block of airgrade aluminium which is beautifully CNC machined with a sand-blasted finish. Logos are laser etched.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges have been minimised as sample pens have already been produced and extensively tested with the Schmidt Nibs [Fine and Medium] to make sure there is no leakage or nib drying. Our qualifications are 30 years of experience producing state-of-the-art Hi Fi products [www.metaxas.com] as well as designing luxury products for the most serious luxury groups [http://www.metaxas.com/Collection_2014-2015.pdf] allows us to be confident to offer and deliver this beautiful "sculpture".
