designC – 100 Years Otto Hutt

Mark Braun, globally renowned as an unusual product designer, draws inspiration from the progressive design concepts of the Bauhaus movement. The common elements in his and Otto Hutt’s design philosophies laid the foundation for a very special collaboration on the occasion of the company’s 100th anniversary. This resulted in a timeless writing instrument – designC.

Limited to 500 pieces. Worldwide.

designC combines a familiar language, which can be found in many Otto Hutt writing instruments, with pioneering influences. It interprets the philosophy of the Bauhaus in a form-focused and timeless way in a lateral thinking way.

Writing is precise mechanical work

design08 has arrived! From now, it is going to set standards against which manual manufacturing precision will be measured. The writing instrument was created by Mark Braun. And it is already the second extraordinary fountain pen that he developed on behalf of Otto Hutt.


The beauty of writing

Some colors are a matter of taste, others seem inseparably linked to certain applications: in black and blue, writing instruments are just timeless. For special occasions and for very special people, a special color may add a subtle touch: our limited edition design04 comes in pearl pink and graphite grey.


A rush of colors

Spring is fast approaching - it only took a bit of sunshine for nature to re-awaken. Crocuses are covering entire meadows in purple and yellow, the first tulips are peeping out, and of course it is time for the daffodils to be making their grand entrance. With various pastel and rose tones, Otto Hutt writing instruments fit perfectly into this spring mood.
