“Good design has always been about creating objects that stand the test of time. With a sense of quality and timelessness – values that are synonymous with Montblanc.”
From the beginning, more than a century ago, the founders of Montblanc placed high value on sophisticated design. Ever since then, stylish yet functional elegance has characterised the exclusive writing instruments of Montblanc. Carried out with immaculate craftsmanship, timelessly striking design gives the perfect functionality of every piece expressive shape. Now, for the first design partnership in its history, Montblanc entrusts its distinctive design language to one of the most influential designers of his generation: Marc Newson.
With Montblanc M, Marc Newson is creating a new writing instrument collection for Montblanc. Reduced to its essentials, the name echoes the purity of the design. As a connecting element, the letter M stands for Newson’s first name as well as for Montblanc.
Enriching the design language of Montblanc with his unmistakable and innovative style, Marc Newson perfectly balances form and function in the new Montblanc M collection. When his trademark biomorphic style meets the iconic design cues of Montblanc, the result is both unique and timeless. Made of black precious resin, the writing instruments’ fluid lines flow gently into one another. Moving from the Montblanc emblem on the cap, along the platinum-plated clip, which magnetically aligns with a white precious resin Montblanc emblem on the perfectly flat “plateau” of the barrel, consummate forms express visionary design. Comprising a Fountain Pen, a Rollerball, a Ballpoint Pen, a ScreenWriter and the new Artfineliner, Montblanc M represents a new generation of writing instruments.
Hidden within the distinctive exterior of each Montblanc M writing instrument is its true highlight. The innovative cap-closing mechanism is a unique union of form and function that utilises magnetic force for an astonishing effect. Upon closing the writing instrument, the cap automatically aligns with the Montblanc emblem embedded in the “plateau” of the writing instrument every time. Through this imaginative yet functional solution, the Montblanc M always retains its remarkable silhouette. The snap mechanism smooths the closure and keeps the cap firmly in place.
Perfectly befitting the works of an iconic product designer, Montblanc introduces a new writing mode with the Montblanc M collection: the Artfineliner. This new extra thin fineliner brings the fine writing culture of Montblanc to those who create and innovate: designers, architects and engineers, amongst others. Perfect for precise technical drawings, it complements the established writing modes of Montblanc writing instruments.
