A Bluetooth headset created by lopping off short pieces of aluminium tubing for the housing. Part of the headset's mechanism is packed into the tubing, like an ink cartridge in a pen. The headset has a pen-like clip that secures it when attached to a breast pocket, and both pens and headsets are communication devices. Because of these and other commonalities, we named the headset after the French word for 'pen'. We finished the headset in alumite, rather than painting it, to bring out the inherent beauty of the metal. The alumite's distinctive color variations- it can look like anything from brass to stainless steel - allowed us to express its honesty as a tool for everyday use. The headset's surface will also change over time, as it accumulates the minute scratches and marks that come naturally through use. These incidental yet planned details will bring further depth and attachment to the headset, like those of a well-loved pen used for years.
