With the LAMY aion, Lamy is expanding its portfolio with a new writing instrument series in an innovative design. Technically structured and
consistently functional, the model epitomises LAMY design – yet also surprises with progressive details. The new series has been designed by
one of the most prestigious designers of the present day: Jasper Morrison.
A sleek, perfectly-proportioned body, a straight clip, a stainless-steel spring.
The new LAMY aion is this minimalist. Designed by the British industrial designer, Jasper Morrison, this is absolutely in harmony with his conviction that good design is maximally simple – yet, at the same time, maximally functional.
An attitude absolutely compatible with the design principles of the LAMY brand– principles it has used as a basis for the development of its writing instruments for over 50 years.
At the same time, the LAMY aion reveals an uncompromising modernity, which is especially visible in the details. For the first time, a Lamy fountain pen has been equipped with a series-exclusive, newly-formed nib. Jasper Morrison gave it an unconventionally-proportioned outline, thus giving the writing instrument an
avant-garde character. A distinguishing feature of the LAMY aion, and a real innovation in the production of writing instruments, is the ‘cast in one piece’manufacture, whereby the body and cap are each designed as closed,seamless components and have an innovative surface structure. The grip zone is matted and thus finely accented. Its puristic, externally-sprung stainless steel clip completes the formal overall concept.As little plastic as possible is used in the LAMY aion and it is manufactured from
all-metal. In order to realise the seamless design and the innovative surface finish of the LAMY aion, Lamy has developed new manufacturing processes. In a sophisticated multi-stage process, the aluminium housing elements are
formed by deep-drawing. The surface structuring is computer-controlled by robot-supported grinding. For its unique finish, the components of the LAMY aion are first brushed, stained, polished and, in the case of the grip, blasted and then finally anodised.
The LAMY aion will be available in black and olivesilver from autumn 2017. The
family of writing instruments includes fountain pens, ballpoint pens and rollerball
