Faber Castell teamed up with Bentley for exclusive special collection of luxury writing instruments accessories that perfectly combine timeless design, passion for precision and superb craftsmanship. Called “Graf von Faber-Castell for Bentley” collection boasts three ranges of writing instruments and matching accessories. All products were jointly designed, developed and launched by Graf von Faber-Castell in close partnership with the Bentley team. This project is an exciting new experience for the German luxury brand, as it is the first time that Graf von Faber-Castell is working together with UK partners.
The fountain pens, rollerball pens and ballpoint pens share many of the exquisite design aspects found in the world of motors: For example, the pen cap was finished with the typical knurling found in cars and the distinctive Bentley “B”, and the characteristic diamond pattern can be found as a fine guilloche on the barrel. The front and corner pieces are polished to a gleam, and are reminiscent of the striking, chromed elements of a luxury car.
The colours of the writing instruments also meet the exclusive Bentley colours: instead of classic racing colours like “Racing Green”, more modern, subtle shades were chosen – such as dazzling “Sequin Blue”, anthracite “Tungsten” and shimmering “White Satin”.
At the same time, the typical design elements of the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection are also recognisable: the solid sprung clip, platinum-plated surfaces and straightforward, understated design – a wonderful combination of elegance and pace, perfectly topped off by a case made of fine Italian calfskin, hand-sewn like the interior of a luxury car.
From 1 September 2018, the new “Graf von Faber-Castell for Bentley” collection will be available worldwide at retail prices from EUR 220 to EUR 390 in Graf von Faber-Castell stores, department stores and specialist shops, online and in selected Bentley car dealerships. Over the coming year, the collection will be expanded to include additional ranges of writing instruments and a limited special edition.
