Hi, I'm Kostas Metaxas
You don't know me, but I think I might know you...
Like me, you love discovering beautiful objects which resonate with your personality. You also like to express yourself with your hands.
"Brands" don't to define you.
You're comfortable and confident with your taste, sensibilty and style.
After the success with my first pen - APYROS [which you can read some of the kind comments here:https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2026090977/infinity-apyros-fountain-pen/comments ] I'd like to show you my latest fountain pen design:
Firstly, you'll love the sensuous curves and how it sits comfortably in your hand. You're also gonna like the weight - not too heavy.
It's not mass-produced from plastic. Each piece is individually machined, colored [anodised] and laser-engraved from a block of solid aluminium.
STYLOS is very different from every other fountain pen. It has soul, it has jazz, it has vibe...It has COLOR.
Black , Red , Purple, Grey , Silver , Pistaccio , Orange , Blue , Gold , Pink
Like me, you can even walk around with a collection of STYLOS COLOR filled with different colored inks. Some days I feel "baby blue"...others "princely purple".
Or fruity orange...dark indian blue [or black], or super red... So I change my color depending on my mood.
You can change the color of your pen by swapping the cap, body and nib holder to any combination you feel like - or not.
STYLOS is sculpture. Its a little "kiss of art" you can carry with you..
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
A solid block of airgrade aluminium which is beautifully CNC machined with a sand-blasted and color-anodised finish. Logos are laser etched.
After ordering, only if you need to, please use the following color codes when we get back to you before we ship your fountain pen:

Risks and challenges
We have already had great success offering the "sister-pen" to STYLOS [Apyros], so the risks and challenges have been minimised as sample pens have already been produced and extensively tested with the Schmidt Nibs [Fine and Medium FH452 - the most expensive nib they produce which can also be used in an Aircraft!] to make sure there is no leakage or nib drying. Our qualifications are 30 years of experience designing and producing beautiful objects.[http://www.metaxas.com/Collection_2014-2015.pdf or http://www.metaxas.com/HIFI_2015.pdf]
