Mark you calendars because on Saturday, November 23 at 7pm EST you’ll have the chance to bid on a very limited set of red Lamy 2000 writing instruments!
The set includes one of each of the following: LAMY 2000 fountain pen, ballpoint pen, mechanical pencil, rollerball and multicolor ballpoint pen. Each pen is made from Lamy’s polycarbonate Makrolon but features a never before seen red finish. Included with the set is a custom case designed by Jony Ive and Marc Newson. The collection of red Lamy 2000 pens is estimated to sell for between 10,000 — 15,000 USD.
These red pens are a part of a much larger collection of products unique to, and created for, the (RED) Auction 2013. Proceeds from the sale at Sotheby’s New York will benefit The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
You can visit Sotheby’s site for more details and to register to bid.
UPDATE: The set sold for $32,250!
