About Von Moos
André von Moos began producing writing implements in 2005. Because he was looking for a further use for offcuts produced at the small teak parquet flooring factory he owned in Costa Rica instead of simply burning them. The first writing implements were made by local craftsmen in Grecia. In 2007 André von Moos then commissioned Claudia Astore, a designer with Italian roots, to create a design for unique writing instruments. His ambition is to develop sustainable products which are extraordinary in form and function. Recent developments are the incorporation of modern information technology into writing instruments. Von Moos smart pen is a worldwide unique innovation to allow contactless pay and access.
