Neat and stylish, the PICO is an innovative design that is compact enough to slip inside your pocket. Using a sophisticated push mechanism, its compact cylindrical shape can be easily extended to a full-size ballpoint pen with a simple flick of the wrist. Its vibrant colour palette also comes in useful when you are looking for it at the bottom of your bag. Explore the rest of the collection by Lamy.
The PICO was designed by Franco Clivio, a product designer born in 1942. After studying at the college of design in Ulm, he worked for many prestigious companies such as FSB, Gardena and Siemens. His contributions to design have been recognised with multiple awards. Working both as a designer and a lecturer in Zürich, he is profoundly interested in everyday objects that enrich our lives through functional and technical finesse. He says: ‘The most important thing is what happens in my head before I produce a design. Suddenly I look at things differently: I see them more precisely.’
Iconic German brand Lamy has developed from a small Heidelberg writing instrument factory to internationally renowned market leader and brand manufacturer. In 1930 C. Josef Lamy established the Orthos Füllfederhalter-Fabrik, and by the beginning of the Second World War more than 200,000 Orthos and Artus brand fountain pens were being produces annually. The streamlined LAMY 27 fountain pen was introduced in 1952, marking the brand’s breakthrough on the market. Lamy produced Germany’s first ballpoint pen in 1964. Lamy embark on a project to design a fountain pen based on Bauhaus principles in 1996, and to this day all their designs are underpinned by the principles that defined the iconic school. All their products are made in-house in their factory, underlying the brand’s quality promise ‘Made in Germany’.
