Designed by Nieto Sobejanos Arquitectos, the building pays tribute to the historical shape of writing instrument packaging with the color combination of the Montblanc brand evident in the building’s dark silhouette with shades of white on the inside.

The work of Paris-based artist Wendy Andreu is the first thing visitors encounter, art from wool colored with ink and filled with surprising details that reveal themselves with every look: words, waves, the shape of mountains. For Studio Marianne Guély, paper is an unlimited source of inspiration used as the signature material for its creations. In addition to the permanent exhibition, there will be a slew of temporary exhibits, the Montblanc Archives (by special arrangement), a café as well as a boutique that features exclusive products.

The new facility also offers a series of classes in its writing atelier to visitors including the art of calligraphy, creative writing and children’s classes. Furthermore, as part of its commitment to the culture of writing, Montblanc will host special classes dedicated to disadvantaged children and young adults to inspire them to use writing to their advantage, to express themselves creatively.
