Elevation With Each Line
The Contour Series by 22STUDIO is an incredible demonstration of their mastery over concrete. The intricate 90-degree edges are neatly stacked, creating a sleek, minimal look. These handheld architectural sculptures go through a unique 14-hour curing process that strengthens the high-density concrete around their steel core. Their timeless design will easily endure daily use for years to come.
From Architecture to Writing
Meet the Studio
"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."
- Sean Yu, 22STUDIO Co-Founder
So unique, and solid feeling pen!
Overall, this is an excellent pen. Certainly durable, it feels very solid in the hand, and has a nice weight to it as well. Very unique, of course, in appearance, and construction. I am not a fan of the refill that comes with it, so I swapped that out. Your mileage may vary. My only real complaints are that the material/surface gets shiny and darker very quickly. You may like this “patina” effect. For me, it’s not so desirable. But that is a personal taste thing. I also don’t care for the joint between the actual pen body, to the metal end at the tip of the refill, where it meets is not flush, and may bother some people. Not a huge issue, but I noticed it for sure when writing. Overall, you can’t ask for a much more unique writing instrument that is this well made and durable!
Great Pen Design!
Love the contoured concrete on this pen! I also bought the contour sketch pencil! As a structural engineer, I can truly appreciate concrete art pieces. KUDOS!
Disappointing and overpriced
Received the pen after additional customs charges which brought the delivery / courier fee up to higher than the the actual pen itself, possibly not this company’s fault; however when I received the pen, the mechanism at the back was loose and kept falling out and in response to this I was sent an instructional video on how to superglue it back together myself. This was meant to be a gift for someone and kind of just ruined the whole experience. Would not support this company again, not worth the price.
I wish I could buy all of them.
Beautiful design, smooth writing, well made
