Minimalux: Ballpoint

Minimalux: Ballpoint

The basic ballpoint pen, or ‘Biro’ as it has become known, has been a useful accessory to our daily lives for many years. Its familiar, cheap plastic casing is synonymous with the product but also its disposability.

With Ballpoint, Minimalux now takes this ubiquitous invention and encases it in a single fluid sleeve of lasting, almost indestructible, solid brass which is not plated or lacquered in any way, thus allowing its surface finish to change with use and age, eventually developing a rich natural patina.

Designed ergonomically, with careful consideration to weight and balance, Ballpoint transforms the performance of the humble refill, providing an effortless and noteworthy writing experience.

Molskine mod

This neat Moleskine mod from Patrick Ng, addresses his need to carry two notebooks around with him — one for use as a diary and the other as a sketchbook.

The two books are attached using snap fastenings and bound in a custom made leather cover, stamped ‘TIME’ on the diary side and ‘NOTE’ on the sketchbook side.

The pen, for all you fellow stationery geeks, is a Pilot 1979 Murex fountain pen.
