Award-winning LAMY

Back

Heidelberg, February 2009. For almost 60 years, the Good Design Award has been awarded each year in Chicago for particularly innovative and design-oriented products. The traditional Heidelberg brand Lamy won the jury over again in 2008 – this time with the LAMY noto. The manufacturer of writing instruments has won the Good Design Award seven times since 1996, meaning that it has now won more awards than any other brand of writing instruments. LAMY pur, LAMY dialog 2 and LAMY studio are just some of the examples that have been recognised by the jury in previous years.

The LAMY noto, designed by Naoto Fukasawa, distinguishes itself through its reduction to the bare essentials, as well as its simplicity and functionality. For the designer Fukasawa, it was a particular challenge to create a ballpoint pen that was unique and which adds something to the Lamy design, but whose stylistic features incorporate and emphasise the principles of the Lamy philosophy established in 1966.

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.
