Gustav Innovation, the Swedish company behind Slanda, strive to create products that create an aha moment. Taking their inspiration from the Dragon Fly, designers Gustav Widström and Marcus Heneen have created the Slanda Self Balancing Ballpoint Pen.
The pair explain “It’s named after a flying insect that has a unique ability to shift directions within a split second – just like your mind. But it can also hover without moving a millimetre, allowing it to focus despite turbulent surroundings”
These distinctive looking pens are designed in such a way that when they are put on a flat surface they stand at a 45° angle, they won’t roll off the desk & are sure to be a talking point. Their sleek chrome bases neatly join a coloured barrel, which is available in black, white, turquoise & red, although this is more of an orangey shade.
Measuring around 17.6mm they are easy to grab & comfortable to hold, Slanda ballpoint pens are supplied with blue ink, refills are also available in black or blue.
