Montblanc collaborates with design superstar Marc Newson for a new collection of writing instruments, Montblanc M, bringing together the maison’s long history with Newson’s trademark biomorphic style. The result is a Montblanc pen that balances form and function with a distinct sense of modernity.
So what can we expect from this collaboration? First thing to note is the unique silhouette on each of these Montblanc M pens. An innovative plateau at the barrel end breaks away from the shape of conventional pens. And when closed, ensures the clip on the pen cap aligns perfectly for a design that flows fluidly through. With the use of magnet, the cap closes precisely with ease while an additional snap mechanism ensures the cap remains firmly in place.
The body is crafted with black resin and milled with a diamond tool to create the plateau at the end. The iconic Montblanc emblem is put into place using ultrasonic welding for a perfectly flat and smooth surface. Rounding off the attention to design detail, a gold nib AU585 features a two-tone finish of rhodium and ruthenium for added appeal. During the launch year only, the nib is engraved with the letters “MN” as a tribute to the Australian designer who imagined this latest evolution in writing culture.
“Like Montblanc, I seek to strike a balance in the design between the simplicity of the functional qualities of this product and the creation of a sensory experience in its use,” explains Marc Newson. “From the sight of the shape’s clean lines or the detailed plating of the nib, from the touch and feel of the writing instrument with its polished surface and ruthenium forepart, to the sound of the click of the cap as it is drawn to the body of the writing instrument with the magnet, Montblanc M offers a seamless writing experience that engages the senses.”
Look for the Montblanc M at all Montblanc flagship stores as well as online beginning September 2015. It will be available as a fountain pen, rollerball pen, ballpoint pen, as well as a screenwriter for use on a touchscreen, and as a fine art and fineliner for technical drawing.
