In the search for new opportunities to strengthen the profile of the LAMY brand, the young Marketing Manager Dr Manfred Lamy finds strong role models in brands such as Braun and Olivetti which are already setting pioneering standards in product design at that time. So it could almost be described as fate when a short time later he meets former Braun designer, Gerd A. Müller. They soon define a joint project: designing a fountain pen based on Bauhaus tradition.
The LAMY 2000 is launched in autumn 1966. This new fountain pen is revolutionary in several respects: unlike writing instruments from other brands, it features no material surplus or design gadgets. Based on the Bauhaus principle “form follows function” it focuses on practical function and thus lays the foundation for the clear design language which still forms the basis for all Lamy writing instruments.
The LAMY 2000 also sets new standards in terms of workmanship, as the material combination of matt-ground stainless steel and Makrolon (polycarbonate) is very challenging to work with and completely new in the mid-sixties.
Specifications: Piston operated filling system with fiberglass, stainless steel and matt brushed finish. With platinum coated 14 ct. gold nib. Ink: LAMY T 51 or T 52.
