The Davinci Pen is an anodized titanium and aluminium ballpoint pen that was inspired by a sketch from the great Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci. The pen is artisanally made using computer numerical control (CNC) technology. Despite its high-tech look, the mechanism is very simple: the user simply rotates the side tube to insert and affix the ink refill cartridge. This is a perfect illustration of two design principles: less is more, and simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
The weight is perfectly balanced for a long journey of drawing. There is an indent for the hand rest also used to fix the pen in the most popular notebooks. A small protruding avoid turning around the table.
All their products are designed and manufactured in Barcelona and most of them are made by artisanal methods without complex tools or machines. They also used aluminium recycled bars to be more sustainable.
