Once Upon a Design
Our goal in designing the Carousel Inkwell was simple: to create a beautifully functional tool that elevates the experience and enjoyment of fountain pen inks.
The Carousel Inkwell is not only a functional tool, but the most joyous expression of our design philosophy embodying the spirit of Ferris Wheel Press.
Our mission began after our own insatiable search for a functional inkwell. We started sketching countless ideas, exploring all different shapes, silhouettes, and rotational mechanisms. Using 3D modelling and printing, we tested and refined our designs, perfecting the internal and external geometries to ensure the best possible results for mixing ink.
After two years of endless experimentation, we have created The Carousel Inkwell, a tool that represents the joy of the carnival and the essence of Ferris Wheel Press.
