Bert Frank preview new 121 collection

Bert Frank article - Bert Frank preview new 121 collection

At the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, Bert Frank’s factory in Birmingham and the London showroom temporarily closed. It gave Co-Founders Robbie Lewellyn and Adam Yeats time to design, prototype and re-connect with materials, process and craft.

The result is the 121 collection, a capsule range of writing instruments and desk accessories for the modern desk space launching as part of the London Design Festival from 12-20th September 2020.

The range, which will be exclusively available online at the newly designed e-commerce website, takes its name from the machined 121 grade solid brass from which the collection is formed. Signature in style and inspired by the industrial language and machinery of the brand’s UK metalwork factory where each item is handmade, the 121 collection is hardworking and elegantly refined in structure.

Two meticulously crafted brass pens, available in a rollerball and ballpoint option, and two refillable brass pencils feature simple linear detailing to lend tactility. The expressive writing instruments are an example of Bert Frank's contemporary style and skilled British craftsmanship. 

Designed to be both decorative and functional pieces of desk objét, the collection also includes three solid machined brass pencil pots and catchalls featuring vertical, horizontal and spiral designs. Three solid machined brass paper weights in ball, cube and pyramid forms complete the collection.

On display throughout the London Design Festival at the Bert Frank Farringdon Showroom, the new desk range is the first in a new line of products extending the brand beyond lighting.
