Inspiration Through Dialogue
For the development of its writing instruments, Lamy has always looked outside of itself for breaths of fresh air: New series always arise in collaboration with renowned external design studios and/or designers. Dialogue with the most diverse designer personalities continually provides Lamy with inspiration and new impulses for product development. In spite of ever-changing collaboration, the typical Lamy design is always preserved and clearly recognisable – thanks to the brand’s well-proven design principles based on the consistent symbiosis of aesthetics and functionality.
Gerd A. Müller
Gerd A. Müller was born in 1932; he studied at the Werkkunstschule Wiesbaden before working as a designer at Braun AG from 1955 to 1960.
Wolfgang Fabian was born in 1943 and was a qualified goldsmith before studying industrial design.
Andreas Haug was born in Heidenheim in 1946. He started his career as a trainee in the commercial and technical areas of Daimler Benz. He studied design at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart from 1968 until 1972.
Franco Clivio was born in 1942 in Schulen, Switzerland, and studied at the Ulm School of Design.
He designed for many successful clients including Erco, FSB, Gardena, Rodenstock and Siemens.
He began his career as a designer right at the very top of things: at Mercedes Benz. At the same time, however, with a rather modest project: the design of the exterior mirrors for the legendary 300 SL roadster.
