Ingenious New Pen Design from Yanko Design

Think about it, instead of having a straight tube ink refill, how about fashioning it as a spiral? Agreed it occupies a bit more space so the pen can’t be sleek and slim, but it holds double the amount of ink! There’s a reason why our DNA is structured in a double helix. I guess it will work like a charm for those disposable types, making them last longer. I won’t call this project 100% eco-esque but it’s a step towards it!

  1. One thing I dislike about the non-spiral design is how it seems to get ink stuck in it. I hope the spiral design will help get more ink out of the pen, but then I don’t understand physics so maybe there’s no hope for it either way.
