Concrete Writing Tools by 22

22 is a design studio from Taiwan, they create bold and unique products from concrete and steel. They employ concrete for its strength and versatility but also for its unique beauty and personality. Every stage of design and production is done by hand at their studio, the concrete begins as a liquid mixture of different elements, but once it sets, it becomes as solid as stone. Their beautiful Concrete Writing Tools include a mechanical pencil, a rollerball pen, and a sketch pencil, all contoured and shaped with unique topographical layers.

The simple geometric shapes of the writing tools emphasize concrete’s strength. They are designed with concrete’s nature in mind, anticipating light chipping and evolving color as design elements that beautifully show the effects of time.

The designs are aimed at users who need a serious writing utensil and who also appreciate the aesthetics of good design. The weight gives them a serious heft that ensures accuracy, while the color and shape adapt to your hand the more you use them. While maintaining its strength and form over years of use, the tool becomes darker and its rigid edges smoother as they respond and adapt to your hand.
