Marc Newson remains as in-demand as ever — and if you’re familiar with the renowned industrial designer’s work with everyone from G-Star RAW and Sunbeam to Nike and Hermès, then you know why (he wasn’t tapped by Jony Ive and Apple for nothing). Another brand to enjoy the fruits of Newson’s labor is Montblanc, whom he teamed up with last year to launch the M collection — Montblanc’s first-ever collaboration. Now the M is back as Newson and Montblanc have crafted an exclusive drop for HODINKEE’s overhauled web shop.
Billed by HODINKEE as “one of [Newson's] most simple, beautiful, and thoughtful creations,” the M pen features a diamond tool-crafted polished black resin case and ultrasonically-welded Montblanc emblem along with a ruthenium-plated forepart for balance. The clip even aligns with the “plateau” at the end of the barrel as a magnet pulls it to line up perfectly with the logo at the base of the barrel, no matter how you close the cap. Simply put, the pen is the perfect illustration of Newson’s flawless coupling of functionality and aesthetics and one of the most fluid, approachable designs of his career.
Limited to just 100 sets, the pen can be picked up now along with a co-branded leather pouch via HODINKEE’s web shop for $500 USD while supplies last.
