Caran d’Ache has joined forces with Alfredo Häberli to create a limited edition of the emblematic FIXPENCIL®. It is a mechanical pencil that he has collected since he was a child, the inseparable companion of his creations and the extension of his creativity.
In two-tone, plum or ochre, the artist reinterprets this instrument which is ideal for preliminary sketches and spontaneous ideas – the essential companion of architects, engineers, designers, illustrators…
In addition to a graphite lead, the designer’s innovations include giving the FIXPENCIL® a combination of four water-soluble colour leads specially selected for an assortment that is both aesthetic and technical. Reflecting the value of sustainability dear to Caran d’Ache, the box turns into a case, which can then be reused.
All these elements mean that the FIXPENCIL® is in line with the current trends established by young designers who attach equal importance to the design and the aesthetics of a product.
