Zebra bLen focused on the people who employ for long hours and feeling stressed by writing.
Zebra found out that the small gap between the pen tip and the pen barrel makes the shake and this shake gives the stress when writing. They then collaborated with a Tokyo design studio Nendo which designed the Blen for a smooth and relaxing writing experience.
The bLen is designed to prevent the pen tip from the shaking by it held tightly in the pen barrel to reduce the gap. A brass weight inserted into the pen tip lowers the pen’s centre of gravity, increasing its stability in your grip. Noise-free writing control and a mechanism designed to reduce the wobbling of the nib also enhance the luxuriant feel of writing with this pen. This cool design is one of the big reason of bLen's popularity.
The bLen’s push clip blends seamlessly into the elegant streamlined barrel. Red detail around the push clip brings a stylish splash of colour to the minimalist white body. The Blen lays down a clear, consistent 0.5 mm line in dense, smooth ballpoint ink. The ink is blur-controlled.
The smear-proof and water resistant emulsion ink also helps smooth writing. Emulsion ink is a mixture of oil-based ink and water-based ink, which has both inks’ features, such as light writing comfort and water resistance.
