The Lamy 2000 Bauhaus Blue is a new interpretation an iconic fountain pen design that, in spite of celebrating its own 50th anniversary three years ago, remains stunningly modern. It resulted from a collaboration between Dr Manfred Lamy, son of the company's founder, and Gerd A. Muller. Mr Lamy wanted to establish a unique character for the company. Muller, already a noted designer for Braun consumer electrical products, agreed to design a fountain pen in the Bauhaus tradition: functional, simple and with attention the materials used in its manufacture. It was a brave design and remains a unique and distinctive fountain pen.
The 2000 was successfully launched in 1966 and has been in production ever since - is this the longest production run of any fountain pen?
The LAMY 2000 blue Bauhaus Limited Edition is the perfect way to mark the Bauhaus centenary, and a must for Lamy fans.
