Caran d’Ache has joined forces with Alfredo Häberli, the Swiss-Argentinian designer internationally renowned for his projects and collaborations with prestigious brands in the field of international design, 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, and llustrators.
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. At the artist’s request, certain finishing touches are taken from past models of the Fixpencil. The button on the mechanical pencil, for example, which also serves as a lead sharpener, is made from the aluminium of its early days with a grooved texture already used in the past, ensuring perfect handling comfort.
Reflecting the value of sustainability dear to Caran d’Ache, the box turns into a case, which can then be reused.
