Concrete Rollerball Pen - 22 Design Studio

Made in Taipei


Concrete is the most common architectural element in Taipei, and 22 Design Studio’s repurposing of this obstinate, pure material brings unexpected pleasure to the writing table. It’s hard to say whether the joy is borne from the tactile contours of the pen’s concrete shaft, its fluid rollerball tip, or its reassuring weight in the hand.  In any case, this handmade, screw-cap pen can stand vertically on its tip like a miniature sky scraper on the sprawling landscape of your desk, so that it’s as beautiful idle as it is in full flight.

Taiwanese designers Sean Yu and Yiting Cheng’s macro applications of the materials from which their city is built are a study in patience. Inspired by Tadao Ando’s cast in-place architecture, 22 Design Studio push high density concrete and 316L steel to their physical limits, repurposing them into utilitarian, handmade tools and jewellery – each piece a beautiful paradox.
