Famed industrial designer Marc Newson has teamed up with Mont Blanc in what is reported to be the German company’s first ever partnership with a designer. The collaboration is set to consist of Marc Newson’s interpretation on a “Mont Blanc M” writing instrument that will retain the core design DNA of both parties while adjusting to suit a more modern market. Regarded as “the most influential designer of his generation” by Mont Blanc’s CEO Jérôme Lambert, the employment of Marc Newson comes as a continuation to his portfolio of big name clients such as Apple and Cappellini and is set to mark a turning point for modern day, luxury writing instruments. The final design is still very much a secret to most of the commercial world, but most interestingly is Mont Blanc’s choice of designer to mark such an occasion. The Marc Newson Mont Blanc M pen will be revealed in early September – stay tuned for more updates on how this collaboration unfolds.
