  • Troika Pens – Innovative, Functional Design for the Digital Age

    Troika pens are taking the world by storm through a dedicated desire to create writing implements that embody equal measures of functionality and streamlined elegance. Troika pens appeal to a broad spectrum of users including everyone from artisans and tradesmen to executives and everyday people needing a reliable, well-constructed pen that still reflects their individual sense of style, personality and purpose.

    Troika

    Great ideas and humble beginnings

    Troika GmbH, like so many innovative companies, began life in 1992 in a residential house in Hattert, Germany with just five employees. Liudger Bӧll, the founder of Troika, had a vision to create a line of high-quality executive gifts and accessories for professional clientèle and corporate identities, with an additional focus on functional gifts such as pens and desk accessories.

    A focus on exclusive writing instruments

    Troika extended their design philosophy to a product that had already existed for hundreds of years and challenged themselves to come up with new and innovative writing instruments that would re-ignite the imagination of the user. True to their name, Troika pens are available in three variants: traditional and elegant fountain pens, utilitarian ballpoint pens and the modern compromise of the rollerball pen.

    A few of our favourite pens

    Unlike other pen brands where the pen is, well, just a pen, Troika have incorporated multiple-functionality into a single design, making their brand of pens the envy of other, simpler designs.

    Consider, for instance, the clever functionality of Troika’s “Construction” ball point pen, designed expressly for men who need to measure or fix things at a moment’s notice. The clever design features a ruler etched along the pen barrel, not just for decorative purposes mind you, the ruler is accurate and can be used in a pinch when nothing else is at hand. The pen is constructed from brass and steel and has the weight of a tool. The pen also features a spirit level and a built-in screwdriver, cleverly hidden beneath a capacitive stylus that can be used with tablets and other touchscreen devices. The hexagonal barrel is also available in a range of colour options.

    Troika Construction PenThe “Hanging Pen” is a great example of Troika’s ability to move with the times with a combination ballpoint and stylus in one. The perfect solution for executives who need to be able to utilise digital media just as quickly as signing a contract in real ink, this model is available in elegant carbon and steel complete with a silver chain. Of course, it’s not always about functionality and design economy, sometimes it really is all about looks. Troika understands the importance of individual style and have created a range of pens that epitomise this ethos.

    Troika customers enjoy a choice of finishes, timeless colours and clever art-pop designs such as the “Cassette Tape” pen or “Goethes Signature”. Other trendy and whimsical designs, guaranteed to capture the heart of anyone looking for a pen that resonates with their personality, are also available here.

  • Get ready to draw and donate this National Doodle Day

    Something we do while on the phone or in a meeting, doodling is often overlooked as a childish action rather than something productive that can harness our creativity and focus.

    pencil-690050_640

    The truth according to Sunni Brown however is that doodling "opens us up to greater insights, better information retention and higher levels of concentration, getting us closer to those coveted “a-ha” moments". Doodling helps us unclutter our minds leaving plenty of room for all of the important information we need to take in at that particular moment.

    As well as all of these benefits, we can doodle to raise awareness and help people suffering from epilepsy with National Doodle Day on Friday 5th February.doodle-day_logoOrganised by Epilepsy Action, the aim of National Doodle Day is to get everyone doodling and donating to help the people and families who are affected. The Doodle Day website says that by doing so, your support will ensure that the 600,000 people living with epilepsy have access to specialist advice, quality healthcare and can live free of stigma, prejudice and discrimination.

    To help you get doodling we've put together some of our doodle essentials, simply click the image the see the products in full.
