Minimalism is perfection pared to its elegant essentials. All else is pointless. It’s a whisper when others are shouting. Simplicity of design, shorn of ornamental bells, whistles, icing, boasts and amenities.
Minimalism trusts itself.
That’s why the Pen UNO is a work of minimalistic accomplishment. This all-aluminum writing instrument is nothing more — and nothing less — than a premium quality tool that trusts itself. The sleek, space-grade aluminum tube in three feather-light lineweights houses a rich ink flow from the reliable Hi-Tec C Coleto gel ink cartridge. Replacement cartridges are widely available on the Internet in a variety of colors.
Pen UNO is needle-thin but the grip section flares slightly to 3/8 in. in diameter, similar to the familiar fingerhold of a standard pencil. The grip section is also your cap. A twist extends and hides the pen tip. Select from an assortment of tasteful colors, including space grey, gold, rose gold, red and black.
Author and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery once wrote, “Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” That is all we wish to say.
