It has been a little while I had some Lamy on those pages here. At least in product reviews, as the most recent Lamy related post was a original interview that I conducted with the Safari-Designer himself, Wolfgang Fabian, in Inside Stationery #2 (one of my most popular posts ever, by the way).
There will be more to come in the Inside Stationery-series, too. A few interviews are conducted since months, but the recent period has kept me very busy, so things were moving a bit slow on the blog end.
On the product end, to long time readers of Scrively it is no secret that the Lamy 2000 is my all time favourite fountain pen (and I don’t think this will ever change) – so I am particularly happy to have now finally gotten around to a review of the Lamy cp1. Why?
The Lamy cp1 stems from the sketching pencil of no other than Gerd A. Müller, who also has designed the Lamy 2000 (and the Lamy st). Gerd A. Müller was born in 1932 and worked as an industrial designer at Braun AG from 1955 to 1960 – where Dieter Rams worked as well at the same time, by the way. Müller and Rams even studied at the same art school in Wiesbaden, Germany.
Before we hop into the review, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Fontoplumo for supporting the review of this pen. You can also buy the Lamy cp1 in their webshop (no affiliate – just a friendly pointer).
Check out the video-review below, which is as always preceded by some quick facts. Again, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
