The Maison has always considered each of its creations as an exclusive aesthetic experience to be enjoyed to the fullest, but also as a creative and collaborative dynamic, of which the Varius collection is one of the emblems.
So what could be more natural than having both Caran d'Ache and the architect Kengo Kuma collaborate on an exceptional new limited edition? This latest creation explores Kengo Kuma's conception of architecture,
which is an exciting tribute to the future, nature and ancestral knowledge. Much more than a writing instrument, the Varius Kengo Kuma is a rare object in which the Japanese delicate work of art and the ancient knowledge of the Geneva Maison's master craftsmen fit together perfectly.
Combining steel and wood, his favourite materials, Kengo Kuma's architectural writing is pure wonder. In these aerial structures that defy gravity reads the philosophy of an artist favouring an architecture based on respect for culture and the environment.
The creative encounter between Kengo Kuma and the Maison Caran d'Ache already existed behind the scenes. The architect, who today designs space in calligraphy, vividly remembers the pencils of his childhood.
Since then, beautiful writing and drawing have been the spontaneous vectors of the artist's emotions and gestures and are at the heart of his practice.
