Sebastien Paquereau’s Favorite Thing: Bic Crystal Pen

We really like the Bic crystal pen designed by László Bíró and Marcel Bich. It is very simple and just as functional as we like.

The design is perfect, a ballpoint, 7 sides like a pencil, a cap and it’s transparent so you can see the color and the ink left. Made to write and draw it is smooth to use and it never dries. This low cost object is for everyone.

It is an extension of your hand. You can have one in each of your pocket, you can give it, and it’s no matter if you lose it. We use it everyday.
