Magic Wand Roller Pen

project information

year:1988
client:Lamy, GmbH
  • The Magic Wand automatic roller pen has no visible movable parts. All mechanical parts are hidden from view and operate automatically. When the user puts the pen in his pocket the roller tip disappears automatically into the main body. When the user takes it out to write, the tip emerges automatically and remains fixed automatically in the writing position until again put away in a pocket. The clip, which fastens the pen to a pocket, fulfills the very important function of reducing pressure on the fingertips when guiding the pen in its writing function. The clip becomes an ergonomic support to guiding the pen, greatly reducing muscular tension on the fingers. The pen is equipped with a safety device that keeps the roller tip hidden when not being used as a writing instrument.
