A pen that not only writes well but also comes with an elegant, ergonomically efficient design is always a good companion. The KOSMOS Pen is an effort to produce such an ideal pen with the help of crowdfunding available at Kickstarter.
The KOSMOS Pen start-up has been conceived by stilform, a Munich-based design firm operated by Christoph Bohrer, Alexander Schmitke and Martin Wagner. Founded in 2013, this design studio specializes in making innovative home as well as industrial products. For these young designers cum entrepreneurs, designing is essentially a process of offering creative solutions for everyday issues and problems. Not only are the desired functions incorporated into the products, but emotional and aesthetic elements provide influential tones in every design made by stilform. Nature is their main source of inspiration and they show a genuine knack for visually attractive products with clear outlines and conforming to modern aesthetic language. The company is a proud winner of a number of prestigious design awards including the ‘Red Dot Best of the Best award’ (2016), ‘Red Dot design award’ (2014), ‘International Bicycle Design Competition’ (2014) etc.
The latest innovation of stilform is the KOSMOS Pen which features a new mechanism and an elegant design. The minimalistic design of the pen is said to be based on the highly coveted ‘Golden Ratio’ principle of nature and ergonomic considerations. It has been able to impress the industry from the start and has bagged the prestigious 2016 Red Dot Design Award. You can choose from the four graceful colors available – the normal ‘Comet Grey’, or the exclusive ‘Rose Moon’, ‘Galaxy Gold’, and ‘Star Silver’. The innovative mechanism of this pen makes it very easy to use. While the perfectly balanced magnetic forces inside the KOSMOS pen ensures a steady writing hand, the strong Neodymium magnet inside the pen holds the cap safely in the idle and writing positions. The Pen is made of a strong and highly durable aluminum alloy which is usually used in aerospace engineering. It features a Swiss tungsten tip to ensure smooth, friction-free writing. Originally the ink cartridge uses a high quality German ink, but it is totally compatible with any ISO standard, Parker-style G2 refill.
Pens are certainly the most popular products for crowdfunded start-up businesses and always attract favorable financial support from the backers. The KOSMOS Pen is no doubt an innovative product which truly deserves the most favorable funding by Kickstarter backers. Being quite young and well versed in the contemporary design discourse, the entrepreneurs of stilform are in a unique position to understand and satisfy the design concerns of the modern world. The KOSMOS Pen, which is advertised by the producers as ‘The World’s Best Pen in 2016’, is a perfect example of the creativity of the entrepreneurs. If this project gets highly overfunded, the entrepreneurs promised the packaging and delivery of all products by a professional logistics agency. It looks like they will receive the POP necessary to fulfill their promise quite comfortably.
