Every year, the Caran d'Ache offers the emblematic 849 ballpoint a face lift through inspiring partnerships with talented individuals asked to call on their boundless creativity to reinterpret the pen. The 849 becomes a blank canvas, the playground of great designers, stylists and artists. The 849 Alexander Girard limited edition was born of the desire of Caran d’Ache, Vitra and Studio Girard to decorate the 849 with the joyous cult patterns dreamt up by Alexander Girard. This multi-talented creator revolutionised the history of 20th century design by leaving his colourful, graphic mark on everyday objects. With a keen interest in textures, patterns and folk art, Alexander Girard collected the writing instruments which enabled him to express his creativity. 

The two 849s call on patterns chosen from the collections of the Vitra Design Museum which houses the designer’s archives. The pink and white 849 boasts the “check stripes” pattern, developed by Alexander Girard to bring a touch of colour to decorative panels and textiles in everyday life. The black and white 849 presents the “double triangle" pattern created for use on textiles and wallpaper. Inspired by the archives of Caran d’Ache, the metal boxes accompanying the 849 are ideal for taking the pens anywhere or keeping them on a desk with all the other writing instruments. Practical designer objects carrying the iconic “the eyes” pattern in pink and blue. 

Caran d’Ache, founded in 1924 by Arnold Schweitzer, was a product of Switzerland’s long history of watchmaking and jewellery manufacture. Today, it is the epitome of superior quality and recognized expertise. 
Each product is created by hand in the Geneva workshops and brings together the traditional expertise of master craftsmen and the performance of computer-assisted machine tools.
