LAMY noto / Ballpoint pen

LAMY noto

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

LAMY noto is a democratic design product from the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. The name Fukasawa stands for the reduction of form to the absolutely essential. LAMY noto is a ballpoint pen whose design is restricted to the absolutely essential functions and good writing. The triangular body with its soft edges rests almost unnoticeably in the hand. The matt surface gives the ballpoint a velvety feel. The clip is integrated in the shell contour. All parts are the same color. No detail disturbs the shape, and everything makes for pleasant, easy and frequent writing. LAMY noto, easy writing, every day.
