What is ZOOM?
“ZOOM” Brand is a Writing series founded in 1986. In the background of the economic situation that was lifted at the time of the establishment, prominent brand goods were the mainstream in luxury goods. In this, we are not a pattern or a logo, but develop a series that makes you feel originality and value in the form. In addition to the above 505 and 707, a unique shape is proposed, such as a 2.5 mm thick card-type sharp pen and oval pen. At the same time, we have been making a lot of time and effort in the selection MONO and processing of materials. Currently, the “ZOOM” brand is full of 52 items in 9 products.
From the creation of the brand to the present, it is always evaluated as “individuality”, and a special limited edition is chosen as the 30th anniversary of the above-mentioned two products which have received the same patronage.
