Martin Walser liked to use NASA-tested ballpoint pens which could be used to write upside down. Ernest Hemingway forced himself to sit at his desk until he had written at least 500 words every day. Balzac needed litres of coffee to be able to write.
Christoph Schnug has made a decisive contribution to shaping the DNA of Prodir pens. The desk in his office is covered in sketches of the new DS9. He belongs to a generation of designers who learned their craft without computers. At least to begin with. That perhaps explains the classical simplicity of his designs, always clear and direct.
