Lamy is a producer of writing instruments in Europe. The company is German-owned. Josef Lamy, who was a sales representative for The Parker Pen Company in Germany, founded the business in 1930 by purchasing the Orthos pen manufacturer.
Lamy was a pioneer in the use of moulded synthetic plastics to make their product. For Lamy, design is both identity and inspiration. Lamy is famous of its pens.
Writing with a fountain pen is like virtuoso choreography on paper. The result is the image of the user's handwriting, the speed and the mood in which the text was written. "The fountain pen is the only writing system which adjusts to the writer", says Managing Director Peter Utsch, who is responsible for production at Lamy.
