The LAMY 2000 has been writing design history since 1966. As a timeless classic it is still one of the most modern writing instruments today. Function alone determines form. With this design principle Lamy has won the hearts of many design enthusiasts throughout the world. And this all started with the LAMY 2000. When it made its first appearance in the shop windows in 1966, it was the first writing instrument of the modern era which did not seek to be a status symbol but simply an honest, high-precision tool for writing by hand. Made of modern materials; stainless steel and Macrolon.
In 1966, the 2000 was designed for Lamy by Gerd A. Müller (who may be most famous for his Braun electric shaver design), and reflected a revived postwar Bauhaus school centered in Ulm, Germany.
The all-metal Lamy 2000 M Black Amber set comes with a brushed surface and unique structure. Its characteristic colour is the result of an elaborate electroplating process whereby stainless steel and galvanic surface processing form a lasting combination. The high-quality finish has a pleasantly warm feel and, combined with the characteristic weight of the pen, creates a sensual writing experience.
The fountain pen has a piston operated filling system. It has a 14 ct gold nib, is platinum coated and hand polished. The Lamy 2000 M Black Amber 50th Anniversary Fountain pen is available as a stylish design piece in a sophisticated gift box, complete with traditional ink bottle.
Lamy is an independent family-owned enterprise which was established in 1930 by , former Parker employee, C. Josef Lamy in Heidelberg. The Lamy brand has existed since 1952 and proved its innovative prowess in the very first year with the completely novel Lamy 27 fountain pen series. And in 1966 the distinctive style of Lamy Design was born with the Lamy 2000.
