LAMY makes just the right sort of pen: unpretentious workhorses designed to be used anytime, anywhere, as unobtrusively as possible. Their success is due in no small part to LAMY’s particular attention to the ergonomics of their pens, making them ideal for uses in schools, meetings and old-fashioned letter writing.
Many models — but most notably the Safari — have been designed to fit readily into the hand, with well positioned grips that reduce strain around the muscles and joints in your hand. Writing should be so simple that you don’t even have to think about it. The pen just slips into your hand and your thought comes out, and then you move to the next thing.
Founded by Josef Lamy in 1930, LAMY came into its own in the ashes of post-war Germany with the LAMY 27, an innovative fountain pen that ran counter to the more ornate tastes of the day. In 1966, they followed this up by releasing the controversially minimalist LAMY 2000, designed by ex-Braun designer Gerd A. Müller. With the Safari’s release in 1980, the company had become the quintessential brand for school children and youths throughout Germany, and soon enough through most of Western Europe.

climate change solutions
& plants a tree for every order
Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like.
That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.
Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
Investing in projects focused on carbon avoidance is not the same as simply buying carbon offset certificates, that is why we have chosen to work with Ecologi.
