The scala writing instruments lend elegance and emotion to the two core shapes of Lamy’s design language: the cylinder and the square block. The form of the pen’s body is strictly cylindrical, while the clip is square. The contour of the body is interrupted by high-gloss trim plated in chrome. The clip breaks up the geometrical austerity, creating a flowing connection between the two surfaces. Such contrasts in form and surface make this series of writing instruments especially fascinating.
