EGOUNDESIGN CENTO3

Design by Achille Castiglioni.

In 2001 Achille Castiglioni together with his friend and colleague Arch. Gianfranco Cavaglià deals with the significance of the ‘handgrip’. Together they design a set of pens and pencils of which some wooden prototypes were made and then kept and treasured to date in the archive of the Achille Castiglioni Foundation. Their purpose was to enhance and recall the attention to the importance of a pencil as an ordinary daily instrument and as a means of expressing ideas and thoughts.
