Pen Type-B

industrial design

After their highly successful design of Pen Type-A back in 2011, Che-Wei Wang and Taylor Levy—CW&T—have created a second edition unsurprisingly titled Pen Type-B. A high-quality and beautifully minimal everyday item that is engineered to last generations, Pen Type-B is machined with ultra-high tolerances, with the pen and its sleeve fitting together perfectly. This creates a piston-like effect that allows the pen to fall inside slowly, and come out with a popping sound when quickly pulled. An internal magnet at the base of the sleeve holds the pen in place when writing, and keeps the tip securely covered in your pocket.

Both the body and the sleeve are machined out of solid titanium that is hard as steel, and light as aluminium. This makes it the ideal material for a writing instrument. The flat side of the sleeve allows the pen to rest on a flat surface without rolling.

The need for pens may be dwindling, but there’s something quite special about handwriting. It’s a reflection of your personality and it can leave a lasting impression. It’s about the mark you make in the world when you put pen to paper, and that mark is something worth doing well.
