Lamy writing instruments embody the best German design tradition and engineering art. They stand out by virtue of innovation, reliability, restraint and status which does not relate to luxury but to intelligence. Writing instruments from Lamy can be seen on the New York Stock Exchange, at conferences in Tokyo, or in the lecture halls of Buenos Aires. And each of these writing instruments first saw the light of day in Heidelberg, the city with Germany’s oldest university. Lamy products are self-contained and succinct. By tradition they embody the Bauhaus principle of functional design: 'form follows function'. This approach makes Lamy products unmistakable style icons and the name Lamy a quintessential brand.
