Caran d'Ache 849 Nespresso
Caran d'Ache 849 Nespresso
The union of Swiss design and recycling
In collaboration with Nespresso, Caran d’Ache is presenting 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. In 2015, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Nespresso’s commitment to recycle its aluminum capsules, the company launched its Second Life project to breathe new life into its used capsules through a range of iconic Swiss products. Having already released a Victorinox Swiss Army knife and a Zena vegetable peeler, Nespresso partners with Caran d’Ache to create a special 849, using recycled capsules’ aluminum for the body of the pen. Caran d’Ache Research & Development laboratory went through numerous tests to create an exclusive alloy using the aluminum from recycled capsules, meeting the quality requirements of the 849. A writing instrument that is both robust and sustainable while boasting a timeless look.
Every year, a capsule colour is selected to decorate the product parts of the Second Life collection. In 2018, the “Dharkan” capsule is called on to lend its dark blue colour to the 849. The “Made with recycled Nespresso Capsules” label reinforces the authenticity of this limited edition.
The 100% recycled and recyclable packaging strengthens the responsible approach adopted Caran d’Ache and Nespresso. Rediscover the pleasure of writing and tasting coffee with the 849 Nespresso. The promise of creative moments reflecting a responsible and sustainable approach!
