Léman de Nuit
An anniversary edition as unforgettable as a night of celebration!
Geneva, April 2018 – The Maison Caran d’Ache is celebrating 20 years of its iconic Léman collection by creating a must-have writing instrument. The Léman de Nuit anniversary edition reveals a hue as deep and as light as the waters of Lake Geneva on a night of celebration!
For 20 years now, Caran d’Ache has been paying tribute to the vibrant colours of Lake Geneva. It is an eternal source of inspiration for the Geneva-based company, which recreates the beauty of this lake of endless reflections on the Léman writing instruments collection. Thanks to silky lacquers and daring guillochages, the fountain pens, ballpoint pens, roller pens and mechanical pencils in this collection showcase the colour expertise of the Maison Caran d’Ache and reveal the know-how of its master-artisans.
To celebrate 20 years of the Léman collection, the Maison Caran d’Ache presents the Léman de Nuit anniversary edition. This brand new edition explores the deep hue of the expanses of the lake under the shimmering light of Geneva's iconic fireworks. The writing instrument reflects the light over its elegant curves in an anniversary edition that is as festive as the illuminated sky on a summer night.
The translucent black lacquer of the Léman de Nuit anniversary edition reveals the meticulous engraving work of Caran d’Ache’s master-artisans. The guillochage with a clou de Paris pattern brings points of light and shine to the body of the pen, like a firework on a starry night. The perfect alchemy between high-end writing comfort and a look that is elegant, refined and contemporary will quickly make this writing instrument a classic.
Available as a fountain pen, ballpoint pen, roller pen and mechanical pencil, the writing instruments in the Léman de Nuit collection are entirely designed and produced in the Maison Caran d’Ache’s Geneva workshops.
