The best award for the world's best pen 2016.
Just shift the Cap - the simplest and most intuitive way to get a pen ready for writing: our new mechanism makes it possible.
Easy to use with only one Hand - the magnetic forces inside KOSMOS are perfectly balanced. A strong Neodymium magnet holds the cap safely in the idle and writing position.
Designed by Nature - the minimalistic design of KOSMOS is based on a universal pattern of nature: the Golden Ratio which can be credited for the pen's harmonic esthetic and turns out to be ergonomic too.
Award-Winning - KOSMOS is a 2016 Winner of the Red Dot Design Award, a prestigious and world-renowned honor bestowed to the best of the best in outstanding design.
The best Aluminum for a Lifetime Product - each part of KOSMOS is lathed from a solid block of a highly durable aluminum alloy. Known for its strength, this material is often used in aerospace engineering.
Fun to play!
"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." - STEVE JOBS
The Golden Ratio is a universal pattern that can be observed in so many structures found in nature: from the balanced proportions of tiny butterfly wings up to the hypnotic whorls of giant spiral galaxies. This ratio equals 1.618 and has been used by great painters like Leonardo da Vinci and other creative minds throughout history. The fact that the beauty of natural beings can actually be described by a mathematical principle inspired us during every aspect of the KOSMOS design process. We have put a lot of effort into applying the Golden Ratio to every component of the pen. The result looks now very clean, minimalistic and beautiful.
"Make it simple, but significant." - DON DRAPER
Our Galaxy Gold and Rose Moon versions of KOSMOS will only be available during the Kickstarter campaign.
Instant visual and tactile feedback on the state of the pen.
We designed KOSMOS with the intention to be a daily companion. Regardless of the occasion or the style you choose, KOSMOS will blend in perfectly, because of its subtle but distinct design. Make your choice from four colors to match your personal style and accessories: Comet Grey, Rose Moon, Galaxy Gold and Star Silver. Newly unlocked: Night Sky.
"Good design is as little design as possible." - DIETER RAMS
Our Rose Moon version of KOSMOS pairs up perfectly with your Apple device and will only be available on Kickstarter.
"Design can have many types of soul, the key is to have one." - JUSTIN AHRENS
Not only does the pen look good, it writes even better. We have tried and tested different types of cartridges and have chosen the best one for you, which uses German ink and a Swiss tungsten tip.
You will get one free stilform refill in black by purchasing KOSMOS.

Thanks to your help we unlocked our €30.000 stretch goal and are now able to offer a suitable KOSMOS Pouch for our pen. The pouch is handmade of Italian leather and a matching follow-up of KOSMOS' minimalistic and subtle design.
Just add €13 to your pledge for every Pouch you would like to get.
To keep your KOSMOS in a safe place or just to present its design even better, we created a Wooden Holder, which matches our pen perfectly - wherever it may be: whether on your desk at work or at home in your living room. Currently, the Holder is available made of oak. Help us to reach our stretch goals to be able to offer more types of wood like cedar and walnut.
Just add €15 to your pledge for every Wooden Holder you would like to get.
An esthetic product deserves an esthetic covering. We created an interesting packaging which is inspired by the functionality and design of the product it keeps - the KOSMOS pen. The packaging is aligned with the Golden Ratio as well and most importantly: it is a pleasure to unwrap. This will only be possible if we reach our €70k stretch goal. We would love to realize this premium packaging, so please support us in reaching this stretch goal.
We are working hard on an attachable ring-clip for our pen. The time is too short to offer the clip as an add-on within our campaign, but it will definitely be available in our e-commerce store with free international shipping for all our backers.
