Discipline: Product

This classy stainless steel pen, by Japan-based and Finnish-trained Swedish designer Dan Britse, manages to express the core design principles of those three countries in a single instrument. Japanese precision meets Swedish minimalism and Finnish restraint. Not a single line or curve is superfluous. The result is a novel design language whose understatement clamors for attention.
