Zen and The Art of Writing
Made from heavyweight brass in New York City by a pair of furniture makers, Fort Standard’s socket pen was inspired by the ball and socket connection of two objects sitting on the designer’s desk. Heavy, slow and exacting to pivot, there is something immeasurably calming about tilting this writing instrument in its base and suspending it in space just so – writing with the ball ink cartridge-fitted pen even more so.
Best friends who met while studying design at Pratt, Greg Buntain and Ian Collings describe themselves as two interchangeable humans. Motorcycle riding, beer drinking, outdoorsy-types, Greg and Ian have built their business around their life motto: ‘Work less, travel more.’
