A New Twist on an Old Fountain Pen S.T. Dupont x Metaxas & Sin

S.T. Dupont and Metaxas & Sins have collaborated on a special edition pen and lighter set for their “Haute Creation” using a very distinct and technically challenging design.

The S.T. Dupont “HELIX” is a radical departure from the work of other artists featured in S.T. Dupont past collections  including  Picasso, Warhol and, Lagerfeld.

According to artist Kostas MetaxasThe main idea was to use geometric patterns and shapes that could never be considered for pen manufacturing since pens are traditionally machined on a spinning lathe and hence, shapes are limited to “tubes”. I wanted to break free from this and create a very personal sculpture that could also be used as a writing instrument.

A fountain pen is one of those rare objects. It connects with us on so many levels. In our most creative mode, it is an extension of our mind which through gestures of our hand convert random thoughts into intelligible concepts, ideas or expressions.  Every time we use a writing instrument – we write code. Sometimes people understand it.  Sometimes  there are layers in the meaning of the words we write. Often, we give away more in the style and stroke of our writing than in the actual words themselves. In many cultures, the written letter and word is “art”.

“I take every opportunity to infuse art into everyday objects. With pens it’s even more tactile sensual and very personal”

Helix is limited to a collection of 300 individually numbered pieces.
