The graphite colouring of the tip, the twist mechanism and the logo lettering emphasise the function and character of the Drehgriffel Nr. 2.

The Drehgriffel Nr. 2 wins the coveted Red Dot Design Award 2022. The winners in the Stationary category is the Drehgriffel Nr. 2. The pencil with a twist mechanism is an unmistakable and distinctive writing instrument that stands out from the crowd, and not just because of its great quality and functionality. In 2020, Drehgriffel Nr. 1 – which is inspired by the 1920s and features a hexagonal barrel with a colour-contrasting tapered tip and twist button – was also awarded the Red Dot.

The Red Dot Design Award is one of the leading and most prestigious design competitions in the world, and the Red Dot Label is regarded as an international quality seal for outstanding design. Bestowed by an expert jury, the famous prize is awarded to products that feature outstanding design. The jury is made up of big-name designers and design experts from around the world.



The mechanism of the writing and drawing instrument is made in Germany: When the twistable head is turned, the chuck opens at the tip and the graphite is pushed forward at the same time. When the twist mechanism is released, the chuck closes and holds the graphite in place. Inside the Drehgriffel Nr. 2 there is also a chamber that holds several refills at once and immediately pushes the next one forward when the other has been used up.
