I recently came across a reference to a "Fountain Pen of the Year Award". I was interested because I had just acquired a Rotring Lissabon which apparently received that designation in 2000, or so I read. I got it into my head that the Fountain Pen of the Year Award might have been a German Design Award. A quick inquiry to the Rat für Formgebung in Frankfurt (German Design Council) indicated that at that date such an award would have been handled by the Federal Government (not the Council). So far all other inquiries have drawn a blank. Does anyone know anything about this award, and other pens that might have been honored over the years? Was it a German or international Award (assuming it existed!). I know that in 2003 Graf von Faber-Castell introduced a "Pen of the Year Series" which I assume is unrelated. Oddly, I have been unable to find further information online.
