Pilot pen by Marc Newson for Hermés

August 22nd, 2014 by retail design blog



Although Hermés have always produced beautiful leather agendas, they’ve never offered a proper writing utensil to match. Industrial designer Marc Newson was called to spearhead the ambitious task of crafting the first-ever pen for the historic French fashion house. After three years of development, Hermés and Newson launch the machined aluminum and steel “Nautilus” produced by Japanese pen-maker Pilot.



The pen, available as a ballpoint or fountain tip, is as much of an art object as it is a utilitarian tool — the intention was to create something that aids inspiration. In a world where our thumbs have become the tool for communication and idea creation, the concept of a now ancient writing utensil seems quite refreshing. Try picking one up some time. And if you’re looking to splurge, head to Hermés.
