A shimmering highlight for the festive season: the new LAMY studio platinum grey.


From September 2009 the successful LAMY studio writing instrument series will also be available in a colour that is among the declared favourites of prominent fashion designers and car makers: metallic shimmering anthracite grey.

An elaborate lacquering process, in which several colour and pearl-effect layers are alternately applied, and then finally sealed with a matt coating of clear lacquer, endows the new writing instruments with a radiance that is redolent of high-quality, classic business fashion.

A charming contrast to this is produced by the grips and instrument ends, which are made of glossy chrome. Similarly, so is the metal clip created by Hannes Wettstein, which artistically turns in on itself, and turns each LAMY studio into a writing instrument of unique attractiveness and flair.

It will be available at specialist retailers und in selected department stores as a twist-action ballpoint pen, ink rollerball with cap and as a fountain pen with a partially platinised 14-carat bicoloured gold nib that radiantly shines against the anthracite grey of the pen body.

About Lamy
The LAMY brand stands for high-quality designer writing instruments defined by their timeless modern aesthetics and perfect functionality. Its success story began over 50 years ago with the LAMY 2000: in 1966, the model established the clear and unmistakeable design which still defines the style of all the brand’s products today – the Lamy design. As an independent family business, Lamy has been associated with Heidelberg since it was first founded in 1930 and therefore guarantees consistent high quality, “Made in Germany”. With an annual production of over 8 million writing instruments and turnover of more than 110 million euros in 2016, Lamy today is not only the market leader in Germany but has developed to become an internationally sought-after brand. The company continues to set trends, not just through its annual special editions and has inspired writing enthusiasts around the world with its innovative colours and surface finishes. In this way, Lamy continues to reinvent itself and proves that a writing instrument is more than just an everyday object: it is a genuine lifestyle accessory which expresses the pleasures of writing by hand and highlights the individuality of the owner.
