New designs in the office
Neue Designs am Arbeitsplatz

Writing instruments

Some things never change: the pencil has been around, pretty much unchanged, for centuries; the ballpoint pen was first invented in the late 19th century. So, for many office supply items, colours may come in and out of fashion, but the basic elements remain the same and how could they be improved on? However, even here, designers and inventors have been putting their minds to the task and do manage to come up with some new ideas, such as a pen that writes on wet or dry surfaces, or a pencil that contains liquid graphite so that it never needs sharpening.

Internet tip!
Take a look at some of the extraordinary new designs for pens and pencils collected at WebUrbanist.
