Breaking The Mold
Re-imaging concrete from the ground up. 22STUDIO's artistic creations are as resolute and uncompromising as the materials from which they are made.
Sean Yu & Yiting Cheng
Meet the Founders
"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
I love this pen! I own three of their screw-cap pens, another retractable, a fountain pen, a mechanical pencil and a drawing pencil. You get the point, I like these concrete writing tools. They are stylish, well designed, and well balanced. Although they are the same size as most pens, they have a substantial heft. And I like the grip of the material in my hand. This particular design is smoother than previous designs I have purchased (the others have more "tooth") Refills for all of the pens are very easy to come by. Mine is currently loaded with a fine point blue gel. This pen should last forever!
