Seven Facets of Time
The Seven Series by 22STUDIO is inspired by the seven-day week's perpetual nature. The seven sides represent this artificially created structure to our sense of time. These striking facets are formed through a 14-day curing process in a specialized chamber—strengthening them and ensuring that they withstand the test of time.

"In 2005, my wife Yiting Cheng, and I founded 22STUDIO to satisfy our enthusiasm for concrete's raw, exposed beauty. Inspired by the works of Japanese architect Tadao Ando, we wanted to create personal products that transmitted the material's honesty and transparency."

An awesome pen that changed my life
I was so excited to use the pen that I filled it from the first bottle of ink I found in my desk drawer. It wrote beautifully from the start, and felt great in my hand. I was in love. BUT--- The pen leaked. I'd clean the ink off the grip section and use it for a day, and then the next day, the same leak and the same cleaning. I got to thinking: (a) God help me, I've bought the DeLorean of pens. I've already bragged about it to everyone I know. I'll be a laughingstock. (b) What exactly was in that little unlabeled bottle, and how many years had it been sitting there? Could the problem be (gasp!) the ink? I cleaned the pen out, and tried a Kaweco cartridge, Smokey Grey (to match the concrete color---first things first, right?) It wrote beautifully, still felt great in my hand, and, mirabile dictu, it never misbehaved again! As for changing my life---I did a lot of scribbling, hatching, and shading trying the pen out. I can't shade with a pen to save my life. Pencil, sort of, good enough for cartooning. But once I got the pen working with that grey ink, I discovered: 1) the F nib puts down a line about as fine as a mechanical pencil 2) the grey ink makes a line that looks like pencil 3) if you go over the line, it gets darker (bear with me here) and 4) IT LOOKS GREAT. It's dark, and nothing like that darker-grey-but-shiny pencil mess The upshot is that for me, this pen is a tool that provides all (or more than) the results I could get with pencil, with all the comfort and convenience (and cachet) of a fountain pen. Executive summary: This pen is a work of art, and after experiencing it, I was transformed. That's what art does, I guess.
Completely different than any other pen in my collection
Very comfortable in the hand - excellent nib - great attention to detail (photos available)
Great writing tool. Comfortable and the design is top notch.
I love writing with this Pen. Something about how it sits in your hand and the way the nib feels is just right.
