Red Dot
This mechanical pencil combines writing and erasing in one product. The telescopic eraser was specially developed for erasing the lead of mechanical pencils. In addition, MONO graph is equipped with a special mechanism to extend the lead, achieved through lightly shaking the pen. In this way, the usual change of grip for using a push-button type is not ne-cessary. By pushing a clip upwards, the lead is fixed so that it does not come out accidentally.

Statement by the jury

»With the MONO graph, writing and erasing skilfully go hand in hand. In addition, the pencil convinces with innovative mechanics which allow users to extend the lead by a simple shake. «
