Pen Type-A: A Minimal Pen

People that live in the Far East have access to a lot of really cool stuff that never makes it way stateside, and we’re not talking Hello Kitty and schoolgirls. Along with sweet kicks and some foreign soil only automobiles, there is a pen that’s well worth importing. It’s called the Pilot Hi-Tec-C and the odds of finding them in the US (even if you’re Nicolas Cage) are quite low. Which is why the design firm CW&T out of Brooklyn decided to improve upon what they think is the perfect disposable pen. Pen Type-A is the result of what we can only assume was countless espresso fueled, late night design meetings. Made out of 304 stainless steel, the sleeve for Pen Type-A doubles as a ruler (cm and inches) and has just enough space to create an effect like a pneumatic cylinder. What that means is that it slides in slow and smooth and makes a cool popping noise when it pops out.
