Pelikan Luigi Colani - Prototypes

In 1982 Luigi Colani designed the ballpoint pen 'Pelikan No 1', which was sold with great success in many colors as a promotional item.
Therefore Pelikan developed in 1988/89 the prototype of a cartridge filler, whose style was also designed by Luigi Colani.
In profile, the filler is in the range of the cap edge a triangle with highly rounded edges. The side opposite the clip is approximately round. The cap edge is not cut straight, but has a nose, which covers in a corresponding bulge on the barrel.
Between the grip section and barrel a bulge ensures that during assembly of the two asymmetrical parts they fit always correct. Because any writer uses the pen a little bit different in his hand, the nib including the ink feed in the front can be rotated by 360°.
This Colani pen was produced in different colors as a prototype. But the pens were never produced for the market in this shape. Nevertheless, there are occasional models of this series in collectors hands.

Pelikan Future

The Future is a fountain pen combining different materials on the grip section and the cap. A modern design. The recessed grips are soft and on each side of the section symmetrically arranged, making the pen equally suitable for right and left handed users. The pen was offered with nib sizes F, M and B.

Who has ever seen the multicolored Future fountain pen, have wondered whether this one has probably bought three pens to get it assembled a colorful writer. Not even close. Around 2000 around could be bought commercially, a single futures filler which was composed of several colors. In addition there was in a stationery shop Futures booth at which the barrel, the grip section to the nib element and the cap of the colors were offered green, red, yellow or blue individually. With a roll down to the pen stall the possible color combination could previously be tasted. In addition to the three levels of the filler parts of the booth offered at the lowest level yet Snap-Pack with 6 cartridges.

The Penstand was available from 1998 in shades of blue, red, green and yellow.

A certain elegance. The delicate, elegantly curved stainless steel clip is combined with a matt barrel have a multilayer varnish coating. This special surface finish not only shines, but has a shimmering depth to it as well – a range with a sophisticated radiance. It is a stylish gift that perfectly underscores that special occasion.

This writing set is available as Ballpoint pen (K16), Rollerball (R16) and Cartridge fountain pen (P16).

The barrel of the pen is made of painted brass, the caps and top parts are made of aluminum.
In addition to the series Stola III there are ballpoint pens and rollerballs in the series Stola I (K14 and R14) and Stola II (K15 and R15). But no fountain pens are made for these two series.

 

The pens are made of aluminum whose surface is matt-silver painted several times.
