Lamy is an independent family company, founded in 1930 by C. Josef Lamy in Heidelberg.
The now well-known LAMY brand came into being in 1952, and proved its innovative character in the first year with the completely novel LAMY 27 fountain pen series. In 1966, Lamy’s distinctive stylistic elements were initiated by Lamy Design, with the LAMY 2000.
The individual production processes are particularly complex and are wrought by hand. Inspired by the Bauhaus principles, precision, function and practicality, Lamy designs ground-breaking writing instruments in cooperation with renowned artists, and has received many awards.
