Faber-Castell Diamond Edition 2012 and Pen of the Year Collection Party Sydney photos images and story: MiSociety 17 December 2012
Faber-Castell draws a stylish crowd to celebrate their 2012 Diamond Edition
Faber-Castell Diamond Pen of the Year 2012 Party at the AGNSW gathered together a very select crowd to celebrate Faber-Castell Pen of the Year Collection and 2012 Diamond Edition.
Graf von Faber-Castell ‘Pens of the Year’ since 1993 collection were individually housed in elegant glass cabinets provoking much discussion amongst guests as to which one they would like adorning their suit pocket.
Faber-Castell guests came to meet and to also re-new friendships with Australia based Count Andreas von Faber-Castell, Countess Virginia von Faber-Castell and Countess Natalie Grafin von Faber-Castell. Guests, including MiSociety, who had not had the pleasure previously of meeting this family could not fail but be impressed by their warmth, charm and grace.
Count Andreas von Faber-Castell (who wishes to be addressed as ‘Count Andy’) gave an extremely entertaining and witty speech full of self depreciating humour that had guests fully engaged throughout. One of the many interesting facts he quoted was that people who write down information have an 80% higher concentration and retention rate than those who type the same information – good food for thought!
Faber-Castell Diamond Pen of the Year 2012 with its diamond encrusted top was the dazzling guest of honour and with a near $100,000 price tag there were several wishing to find it hidden under their Christmas tree this year.
Faber-Castell company is now some 250 years old having begun business as pencil makers in Germany. Now Faber-Castell has diverse interests world wide as well as being the world’s first private company awarded carbon trading approval by the United Nations.
A very stylish and special evening in Sydney.
