Lumos - Create Magic
A Beautiful & Infinitely Refillable pen.
A Beautiful & Infinitely Refillable pen with 9 Incredible Tips.
Too many pens and their refills are disposable by design. Similar to printer ink cartridges, pen companies want you to buy into their format so that they can keep selling you replacement pens or refills over and over again. It's good for their business, but it's bad for the planet and stifles creativity.
As a product designer and craftsman who loves using a variety of pens to create illustrations and designs, I had this very problem! Pens would sit in my drawer for years, either patiently waiting for that very specific refill, or I was just loathed to dispose of an otherwise fully functional pen that had run out of ink.
Having designed and handmade calligraphy and fountain pens for creative folks across the world full time for over 6 years, I decided it was time to apply my knowledge to the pen I used most of all and one of the biggest culprits when it came its disposable nature: the fineliner.
GOOD TO KNOW:

Customer Service across the world was excellent. I love my Lumos, so clever and versatile. It's a beautiful pen, lovely to hold. So lovely doing business with a company that cares about their customers and the environment. Thank you.
Great pen worth the wait Tom. As always your team are so helpful with any queries I have had.
What a beautiful writing instrument. It is lovely to look at and handle. So easy to use and writes beautifully. Have tried the brush tip and a fine tip, they write so smoothly. Really enjoy using this lovely pen.
There was a delay with the order, which was unavoidable. However, I was kept up to date with progress. There was a small issue with my order but I received a response to my query within hours, even though the email was sent on an evening. The issue was resolved very quickly.
The Lumos is perfect. I anticipated the construction to be a bit fiddly but it was very straightforward. A very high quality and it is a dream to use. I wish there were more companies like Tom’s Studio. I would definitely buy from them again and highly recommend them.
Beautiful craftsmanship, amazing attention to detail in the design. The Lumos is lovely weighted pen to use, not having the plastic waste of a micron or the faff of a traditional technical drawing pen are a huge selling point to me, the ability to change ink colour so easily areal bonus. I’m looking forward to trying out all the nib options
Things aren't always Black and White.
Any ink colour anytime. The Lumos is designed so that you can refill with any fountain pen ink (and even some pigment inks). So there are no limits to your colour palette when creating your next masterpiece.

Tip, Top, Tips
Japan is where the best technical pens are made. I was never going to be able to design anything that came close to the precision and decades of perfectionism of a Japanese-made nib. So I designed the Lumos around them, with 9 sizes and types you are sure to find the ones to perfectly suit your style.
Reduce, Reuse, Refill
It's always seemed crazy to me to have to dispose of an otherwise amazing pen, just because it has run out of ink! With it's interchangeable ink reservoir the Lumos allows you to easily refill with your ink colour of choice. You'll also never have to buy another pen again! No more refills, No more waste
As a designer, I am always reaching for at least two pens to highlight or add details in different styles to my work. Different pen styles offer different functions, whether that's accentuating detail in a drawing, changing between line weights, or just doodling for the fun of it I wanted to create a pen that you could use for a variety of tasks and that you could truly customise to the way you work.
