Made in Germany, all writing instruments by LAMY combine functionality and attention to personal handwriting styles. C. Josef Lamy founded the business in 1930 by purchasing the Orthos pen manufacturer, FüllfederhalterFabrik. LAMY’s first distinctive product, LAMY 2000, was born in 1966, a direct result of the Lamy Design vocabulary that was crafted for the purpose. The fountain pen has cultivated an image of design-focused production — there is a certain mystique around its Bauhaus sensibilities. “When we write manually, we do it using all of the senses. Whether small and even, large and elaborate, straight or sloped: every person’s handwriting is unique – reason enough to give it the attention it deserves. LAMY has high-quality writing instruments that transform manual writing into a personal experience. So, for example, the LAMY 2000, LAMY dialog 3 (picture), and LAMY studio Palladium fountain pens have a 14-carat gold nib refined with platinum, guaranteeing a uniquely smooth writing experience. The body of the LAMY scala is made completely of stainless steel and has a sophisticated titanium, matte black, or brushed black finish, depending on the model.”
