For the first time in the history of Montblanc, Montblanc entrusts its distinctive design language to one of the most influential designers of his generation: Marc Newson.
With Montblanc M, Marc Newson is creating a new writing instrument collection for Montblanc. Reduced to its essentials, the name echoes the purity of the design. As a connecting element, the letter M stands for Newson’s first name as well as for Montblanc.
Enriching the design language of Montblanc with his unmistakable and innovative style, Marc Newson perfectly balances form and function in the new Montblanc M collection. When his trademark biomorphic style meets the iconic design cues of Montblanc, the result is both unique and timeless. Made of black precious resin, the writing instruments’ fluid lines flow gently into one another. Moving from the Montblanc emblem on the cap, along the platinum-plated clip, which magnetically aligns with a white precious resin Montblanc emblem on the perfectly flat “plateau” of the barrel, consummate forms express visionary design. The Montblanc M designed by Marc Newson collection exists of a fountain pen, rollerball, ballpoint, screenwriter and the new artfineliner.
Hidden within the distinctive exterior of each Montblanc M writing instrument is its true highlight. The innovative cap-closing mechanism is a unique union of form and function that utilises magnetic force for an astonishing effect. Upon closing the writing instrument, the cap automatically aligns with the Montblanc emblem embedded in the “plateau” of the writing instrument every time. Through this imaginative yet functional solution, the Montblanc M always retains its remarkable silhouette. The snap mechanism smooths the closure and keeps the cap firmly in place.
