In collaboration with Nespresso, Caran d’Ache presented a new 849 ballpoint pen in limited edition made using the aluminum from Nespresso recycled capsules. This exclusive writing instrument was born of the encounter between two iconic Swiss companies, sharing common values: sustainable development, innovation and Swiss design quality. This writing instrument gives environmentally-conscious coffee-fans something to write home about.
The classic 849 pen has been reimagined in recycled aluminum for the first time, creating an accessory that is elegant, trendy and responsible. The limited edition 849 Nespresso is presented in the satin midnight blue of Dharkan, celebrating one of the most popular coffees from Nespresso’s permanent range.
Caran d’Ache 849 Nespresso is a salute to recycling, and designed to remind consumers of the infinite durability of aluminum which can be re-melted and reused again and again. It aims to encourage the recycling of Nespresso coffee capsules by showing the infinite potential of aluminum.
For the 849 Nespresso limited edition, the two Swiss companies took up the technical challenge of using recycled Nespresso capsules to create a high-quality alloy of aluminum. The result is a writing instrument par excellence.
With its instantly recognizable hexagonal shape, the 849 ballpoint pen is one of Caran d’Ache’s flagship products. Heir to the principles of industrial design and its ergonomic concerns, the 849 and its purist form have the ultra-comfortable proportions of an iconic model. Its timeless design is complemented by the exceptional performance of the Goliath cartridge, which can write up to 600 A4 pages. The brightness of the finish is achieved through a micro-beading process and electrostatic treatment, while eco-friendly packaging underscores its eco-credentials.
