In collaboration with Nespresso, Caran d’Ache is presenting anew 849 ballpoint pen in limited edition made using the aluminiumfrom Nespresso recycled coffee pod capsules. This exclusive writinginstrument was born of the encounter between two iconic Swisscompanies, sharing common values: sustainable development,innovation and Swiss design quality. In 2015, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Nespresso’scommitment to recycle its aluminum coffee pod capsules, the companylaunched its Second Life project to breathe new life into its used pod capsules through a range of iconic Swiss products. Having alreadyreleased a Victorinox Swiss Army knife and a Zena vegetablepeeler, Nespresso partners with Caran d’Ache to create a special849, using recycled capsules’ aluminium for the body of the pen. Caran d’Ache Research & Development laboratory went throughnumerous tests to create an exclusive alloy using the aluminiumfrom recycled coffee pod capsules, meeting the quality requirements of the849. A writing instrument that is both robust and sustainablewhile boasting a timeless look.
Every year, a capsule color is selected to decorate the product parts of theSecond Life collection. In 2019, the
capsule is called on to lend its deep green color to the 849. The second edition illustrates the technical flair in creating an elusive alloy from the aluminium of recycled coffee capsules, without compromising the quality of the iconic Caran d'Ache ballpoint. The“Made with recycled Nespresso Capsules” label reinforces the authenticity of this limited edition. The 100% recycledand recyclable packaging strengthens the responsible approach adopted Caran d’Ache and Nespresso for sustainable development.
