Align's minimal pen body is divided into three parts, where the middle part is dislocated when the pen is closed. To use the pen you simply need to twist the pen to align the middle part with the rest of the body, the pen tip will be pushed out following the alignment.
Simplicity, quality, function and innovation have been the central tenets during the design process throughout this project. We wanted to break away from the standards in the pen market while achieving a high end device at an affordable price.
The mechanism we designed for this pen is completely unique, yet intuitive and reliable. We wanted to transcend the classical twisting or clicking mechanisms by developing this precise and user friendly piece of engineering.
