Sure to be a conversational piece for years to come, Caran d'Ache's Limited Edition Klein Bleu Desk Pencil Sharpener launched Winter 2020.
The unique Caran d’Ache + Klein Blue® collection reveals Art in its purest form. Mixing its colour expertise to passionate craftsmen with unique know-how, la Maison Caran d’Ache is paying a tribute to one of the most astonishing artists of his generation: Yves Klein. World-famous for his monochromes, Klein grabbed hold of the blue colour and its extremely saturated ultramarine shade, "the most perfect expression of blue". The artist knows how to reveal all its singularity, its matt and luminous radiance through an ingenious process: the International Klein Blue® (IKB).
In keeping with the collection brought out in 2013 for the 80th anniversary, Caran d’Ache unveils a new exclusive edition of one of its most iconic products. Supplied in decorative limited edition tin, it has been produced in limited numbers.
What intimately links Caran d'Ache to Yves Klein is the values they share, such as their fascination for colour and passion for pure and powerful pigments. When the colour designer meets the blue infinite, it is a celebration of creativity in all its forms and for all uses. Klein cultivates the most diverse modes of expression. He writes whether with a fountain pen or a ballpoint pen, to embellish his work, publish books and articles. He draws either with a pencil or with a graphite pencil, to adorn his travel notebooks with sketches.
This is why no less than seven iconic Caran d’Ache products have been revisited, giving rise to a unique limited collection. A collection where the beauty and power of the infinite ultramarine blue are reaffirmed by the quality and creativity of Caran d'Ache.
