The "Classico" Desk Pen, a design by Matteo Thun, comes from ACME Studio's line of designer desk pens. Each pen is made to be a unique one of a kind design. This desk pen is made to look like a classic desk pen with the pen and base made from a lathe spun rosewood with a gold plated front section on the pen.

The "Classico" comes packaged in a black ACME box with an illustration of the pen depicted on the top.

About Mattheo Thun: 

MATTEO THUN was Born in 1952 in Bolzano/South Tirol. Studied under Oskar Kokoschka at the Salzburg Academy. In 1975 he was awarded his P.H.D. in architecture at the University of Florence, Italy. In 1981 in collaboration with Ettore Sottsass, he founded Sottsass Associati and the Memphis design group and between 1983 and 1996 he was Professor of Design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Matteo Thun inaugurated his own Design Studio in Milan, Via Appiani 9, in 1984. Thun represents the “Second Generation” of modern architects. Not easy to define from a stylistic point of view, he differenciates "his artwork" from the other prominent "signature-architects"of the eighties by his distrust versus settled thinking and working models. Matteo Thun has always avoided a defined identity, neither in architecture nor in design, because a specified identity would only put pressure on him to always create the same type of works. For his customers he looks for strategies able to multiply identities and not to concentrate on one and the same.
