The Drehgriffel ballpoint pen is inspired by a historical model, the propelling pencil of the 1920s. Its characteristic design with the typical hexagonal body and pointed tip – which, like the twist button, shows a contrasting colour – makes the writing utensil unique. The Drehgriffel is made from precision-milled aluminium and brass, which is painted and sealed. It uses a spring-loaded twist mechanism.
Statement by the Jury
Its convincingly independent design features a retro-style that makes this ballpoint pen an aesthetic eye-catcher on the desk.
