The Naos was inspired by the Brutalist architectural style pioneered in the 1950’s by famous architect Le Corbusier. It favoured rough textures such as raw concrete and large minimalist forms to create buildings imposing sense of scale and utilitarian feel.
The largest pen in our collection, the Naos’s body is composed a of simple cylindrical cap adjoined to an octagonal barrel, and uses beadblasted, knurled, and machined finishes to create contrasting textures with an industrial aesthetic.
This rollerball uses a smooth-wring Schmidt 5888 refill. This ink is water-based and will put down a line with the lightest pressure.
A clip is available for this pen as an optional extra. It is easily removable without tools by unscrewing the top finial.
