The tactile experience of using a pen and paper is something that is hard to replicate. While technological advances have seen the introduction of digital forms of writing, there’s something to be said about the art of handwriting. For most of us, handwriting is a skill that was nurtured at school, working our way from pencil to pen over time. While it may seem like this traditional way of communicating is becoming increasingly obsolete, German designers Stilform have re-energised the art by creating premium pens that add enjoyment to the process of handwriting. Off the back of their much-loved KOSMOS Ballpoint Pen, Stilform is back to share their newest offering, the KOSMOS Ink Pen.
Simplicity and attention to detail are two of the founding principles on which the brand was founded. They design objects to make you look and feel good, effortlessly. The KOSMOS Ink Pen does both, providing a distinctive chamfered surface that is comfortable to hold, while its beautiful, simple design elevates any workspace. The detail on the cap and barrel not only adds a futuristic element to the design but keeps the pen safe from rolling off your desk or notebook. Stilform has included their innovative magnetic cap mechanism that automatically aligns the barrel and cap perfectly and clicks shut so the pen will never dry out.
The KOSMOS Ink Pen is crafted precisely from grade-5 titanium or grade-6 aluminium, making it exceptionally durable and lightweight. The design is void of any plastic parts that might corrupt the purity of the pen’s aesthetic and premium attraction, boasting a full metal barrel and cap. The titanium option is available in its natural, classic colourway while the aluminium pen comes in a curated selection of colours including comet grey, rose moon, warp black and the striking navy-hued night sky. Fellow German company Peter Bock have designed the steel nib that comes with each pen, with luxurious upgrades available from black steel to 14k gold. The nibs are customisable with a variety of thicknesses to choose from, letting you cater the pen to your specific writing needs.
Following on from its award-winning predecessor, the KOSMOS Ink Pen promises a smooth writing experience in an attractive minimalist package. Combining intelligent technology with premium materials, Stilform has challenged the idea of a pen as a disposable object, crafting a product that you won’t leave home without. Having smashed their Kickstarter goal, Stilform is offering a discount off the retail price for preorders.Pre Order: Kickstarter
