LONDON, UK – Do we really need to throw away our favourite sets of pens once they run out? Can there not be a way to make a set of pens useful and playful even when not used for colouring or writing? These are the questions the design team answered with the concept of Magnetips. The idea behind this innovative product came from a love of colouring, good design, and the desire to de-clutter the work space.
Product designer, Noam Bar Yohai has teamed up with graphic artist and illustrator Jo Hill, to design this magnetic fine liner set. The idea was not only to design high grade refillable colouring pens for their artistic pursuits, but also be able to keep them in one confined spot, reduce clutter on the work top, and minimise waste. These pens are and refillable and are purposefully designed to last.
Each of the fine liners has 2 Neodymium magnets fixed in their shell, making them attract one another and to most metal objects, allowing nearly unlimited options for how the pens can be stored or presented. The pens contain high quality, fine line refill and can be used for colouring, design sketching, or just writing beautiful prose. The basic set includes 20 pens in a palette carefully curated by the team.
The Kickstarter campaign is using the “pre-order” rewards model, enabling backers to support the project and help raise funds for the first production batch. Two editions will be produced primarily – black or colour shelled pens, with an early bird price of as low as $29 per set. Additional refill sets are also offered as an Add-on to the main pledge.
Perks al so include metal balls, which vastly expand the amount of structures that can be made with the pens, making the set a playful item and expand it’s use far beyond that of a normal set of colouring pens.
“We had so much fun with this project,” explains Noam. “the pens kept presenting new possibilities to us, almost having a life of their own. From wearing them on our wrists, to decorating our lamps – you name it, we probably built it with these guys. We hope people will enjoy them as much as we do.”
