Qwerty

The Qwerty collection is inspired by the alphanumeric keyboard patented in 1864 by Christopher Sholes. This pen pays homage to a timeless system, born with typewriters, but still present in our daily lives.

“Writing is a sophisticated form of silence.”

 

 

Alessandro Baricco

THE STORY OF THE QWERTY KEYBOARD

Christopher Sholes and co. patented a first version of the keyboard featuring letters arranged in alphabetical order in 1864. When Sholes and his partners signed a contract with Remington in 1873 to build the first typewriter, the key layout was completely different and was named Qwerty after the sequence of the first six letters on the top row. There are several theories as to why this change took place, but the most widely accepted is that the telegraphers, interpreters of Morse code, helped to reformulate the keyboard in the way that worked best for them.

A TIMELESS SYSTEM

There have been many attempts over time to introduce different keyboards, but the Qwerty one has managed to make its way around the world and become the established system for typists. The fact that this functionality is as close to vintage as it is to technology, makes it truly timeless.
