Schon DSGN was founded on the idea of objects without compromises. Products with executions unwavering from the initial vision. Since its inception, founder Ian Schon has designed a line of EDC pens (everyday carry), created with the highest level of craft and finish in collaboration with local manufacturing partners in Massachusetts.
Ian strives to create heirloom quality objects that outlive their owners, the kind of products that have a very permanent feel, hence the solid metal construction of the pens.
It is very important to Ian that all products are made locally or in house so that he can be a part of the manufacturing process and ensure that his goods are produced to the highest quality and under safe and ethical working conditions.
Currently Ian is working on launching a new division, Schon Horology, focusing on handmade watches created with the same design sensibilities and ethos as Ian’s pen collection.

Schon DSGN began when I launched this pen on kickstarter. Below is the video from that campaign if you want to hear me talk about how I got started.
