This deluxe pen has been crafted from rich zebra wood and polished brass, creating a blend of precious materials laid in a simple, minimalist style. This pen weighs 55g ensuring that it feels like something with substance, and is designed to withstand everyday wear and tear and become more lustrous with time.
The veins of the zebra wood have been purposefully left exposed to emphasise the work nature has already done in contrast with the more human artifice of the pen’s shined brass nib, suggesting a delicate balance between the natural beauty and that which we create ourselves.
E-Y Products are a Chinese design company who are re-inventing everyday items into beautiful objects. They chose their name because the letters “E” and “Y” have a close phonetic similarity with the Chinese word for “Surprise”, and it is easy to see why this name describes their products so well.
E-Y designs turn objects which might easily be seen as benign occurrences in our daily lives (pens, rulers etc.) into objects which inspire us and become something to be showcased instead.
Founders Jerry Huang and Eva Zhou are graduates from the Raffles Design Institute, and founded E-Y Products in the year 2010 as a brand of their Dongwest Design Studio. With E-Y Huang and Zhou want to give people a pleasant surprise, and to make them think again about tradition.They strive to create objects which tap into the excitement of unexpected beauty.
