Industrial designer Marc Newson created a high-end pen that celebrates the past and future of writing utensils. Although many consumers rely on digital devices for note-taking, there are many people who still prefer the simplicity of pen and paper. This luxurious stylus is prefect for those who appreciate the art of writing.

Newson's design is called the 'Montblanc M' fountain pen and it features a look that is both nostalgic and modern. The high-end pen is made from Montblanc's signature black resin. The iconic M design is shaped using a diamond tool, which allows the pen to produce sleek and fluid lines. This luxurious writing tool also features a magnet that ensures the cap stays put when the pen is not being used. As Newson explains, "the end result is both intuitive and practical, giving it a certain playful character."
