The Lamy 2000 was designed by Gerd Alfred Müller and the fountain pen was released in 1966, followed by the ball point pen in 1968 and the mechanical pencil in 1970. It remains in production today. The 2000 was innovative in its day for its use of a special fiberglass resin produced by Bayer, Makrolon, for the body of the pen.
