Pen UNO came to life on Kickstarter with the support of more than 1500 backers. Now you can get it on designboom for only $35 – a saving of $10 of the retail price of $45.
Pen UNO is a sleek and super minimal all-aluminum pen available in different colors: space grey, gold, rose gold, red and black. It uses the Hi-Tec C Coleto gel ink cartridge which is widely available in a variety of colors and lineweights.
With only 5.3 mm in diameter, Pen UNO is one of the thinnest pens in production. The grip section is wider for a very comfortable writing experience and also doubles as a twisting cap to protect the pen tip when not in use. A few turns of the barrel will open or close the pen.
Pen UNO is perhaps the most minimal pen in the market. It is the study of liberating a pen of unnecessary parts and ornaments. The design aims to be a simple yet powerful solution focused on the details.
Pen UNO is thin with the grip section measuring at 3/8″ in diameter – similar to a standard pencil – which provides the most comfortable writing experience. Your hand and brain will remember the old days writing with a wood pencil. In addition, the Hi-Tec C Coleto gel ink cartridge is a favorite of many because of its smoothness, reliability, and precision.
