Must… have… Lamy Dialog 1 designed by Richard Sapper in 2003. The Sap is also that guy that did that kettle and a zillion other Alessi paraphanelia. Somehow, it manages to feel way more relevant now than it did 5 years ago when it picked up a Good Design Award. For whatever reason, I was always more drawn to the typical Lamys, ie the cheaper ones that I owned. Not that the Dialog 1 is prohibitive, but it is quite costly for a ballpoint pen but how steezy is it gonna be when you signing shit.
