"Pens may have a rubber area located near the pen tip, for gripping/comfort. but it is generally fixed. I wanted to create an adjustable area, where the user can adjust the gripping/comfort area, as they desire, and also change it just as quickly. The o-rings not only provide the adjustability, but also a slightly whimsical, game like relief for restlessness, nervousness or impatience.

At first it may look like a textured rubber sleeve, but then the discovery is in the fact that the rubber area is comprised of several o-rings, which are adjustable to numerous configuration, satisfying each individual users grip and comfort, as each user has a very personal way to grip a pen. I wanted to create a serious looking pen, while adding a discovery, which is where the name Oh-Ring came in to play."
