Ballpoint pen from Vilnius Central Post Office

Vilnius’ Central Post Office was reconstructed by architects Algimantas (1928–2018) and Vytautas (1928–2016) Nasvyčiai project in 1969. The visual system of Vilnius’ Central Post Office was created by Feliksas Daukantas (1915–1995) – father of Lithuanian design education. He also designed his famous electronic clock and special ballpoint pens for Post Office visitors.

In 2018 using the archival object from Daukantas family wooden ballpoint pens were reconstructed, representing one of the professors’ leisure pleasures – fishing. Parallel with his professional activity, he also designed baits, wrote a fishing handbook and was awaiting for trips to nature.

The special souvenir was launched during the exhibition 'Stories of Things. Lithuanian Design 1918–2018' at the National Gallery of Art.

We are delighted with the collaboration with the Daukantas family and particularly Gabrielė Naprušienė.
