Contour, ballpoint pen.
22 Design Studio, 2018
High-density concrete, stainless steel
Contour Ballpoint Pen is made of 22’s high density concrete and 316 Stainless steel.
To convey the straightforward spirit of 22, substantial time and efforts is put into the development of new writing tools. 22 Design Studio invited the bezel supplier (whom produce our 4D concrete watch) to process the metal part. Through CNC machining, each of its structure is exposed and clear to understand.
The body of the pen is made of concrete and is finely contoured in our workshop, offering a unique grip. Over time of use, the concrete barrel will become darker, and its rigid edges smoother as they respond and adapt to your hand.
“Concrete begins as a liquid mixture of different elements, but once it sets, it becomes as solid as stone… We employ concrete for its strength and versatility but also for its unique beauty and personality. Additionally, we design our products with concrete’s nature in mind, anticipating light chipping and evolving color as design elements that beautifully show the effects of time.” - 22 Studio
The designers of 22 have captured the essence of city life in their revolutionary reimagining and repurposing of concrete and steel. Composed of materials typically utilized in construction, the studio’s handmade timepieces, jewelry, and writing tools are unconventional and bold, yet possess, perhaps unexpectedly, the delicate beauty and exquisite attention to detail characteristic of fine craftsmanship. Geometric shapes and striking lines convey a sleek, minimalist aesthetic reminiscent of the modern metropolis. Ever the innovators, designers at 22 are continuously perfecting their production process to meet the evolving manufacturing needs of each highly imaginative design. The result is a robust collection of durable and unique works of art.
