PRODUCT:  Fisher Space Pen
MADE: USA
SIZE: 3.75" long
MATERIALS: 3.75" long
DESIGNER: Paul Fisher
This pen, which is both stylish and incredibly rugged, is a standout in any galaxy. The original Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948, and Paul Fisher was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum. It became the first Fisher ball point pen, the 400 Bullet Pen, and arguably the most popular pen of the twentieth century. The pen is now all brass with a Rainbow Titanium Nitride finish.

The Space Pen may be used in zero gravity, underwater, over wet and greasy paper, at any angle, and in a very wide range of temperatures. When closed, it is the perfect size to carry in your wallet, pocket, purse, car glove box, organizer or toolbox. When open it's a full-sized, evenly balanced writing instrument.

Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the classic design of the Fisher Space Pen has been often imitated but never duplicated.
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
