With the launch of the new (MONTBLANC M) RED writing instrument, Montblanc joins the fight against AIDS, raising funds to support programs that help millions of people impacted by HIV/AIDS. Using precious red resin Marc designed this writing instrument with fluid and pure organic forms while honouring the iconic Montblanc hallmark.

It is a available as a Fountain Pen, Roller Ball and Ballpoint pen.

For every (MONTBLANC M) RED writing instrument and accessory purchased, 5 Euros will go to the Global Fund to support HIV/AIDS programmes, that’s enough to provide over 25 days of life-saving HIV medication.

“A couple of years ago I was looking for opportunities to exploit designs I’d already done for the benefit of RED. My Montblanc M pen design seemed the perfect candidate. It was very customisable and I knew the result would be perfect - red is the most recognisable, intense and iconic colour in the spectrum, both physically and philosophically”.
