Montblanc Takes the iPad Minis to Extreme With a New Folio Case
Montblanc presented Extreme – a beautiful collection of smartphone and tablet cases compatible with a wide range of devices including the whole iPad Mini family. Crafted from premium leather the case delivers great impact protection and thanks to subtle woven carbon design offers stunning looks. Naturally, the folio tablet case comes with signature designer’s emblem inside a black metal ring, underlining its luxury status. The case also sports integrated stand functionality offering a couple of viewing angles.
Founded by the stationer Claus-Johannes Voss, the banker Alfred Nehemias and the engineer August Eberstein in 1906, the company began as the Simplo Filler Pen company producing up-market pens in the Schanzen district of Hamburg. Their first model was the Rouge et Noir in 1909 followed in 1910 by the pen that was later to give the company its new name, Montblanc. The Meisterstück name (English: "Masterpiece", the name used for export) was used for the first time in 1924, for the top lines of fountain pens. Today, the Montblanc brand is on other goods besides pens, including watches, jewellery, fragrances, leather goods and eyewear.
The company was acquired by Dunhill in 1977, following which lower price pens were dropped and the brand was used on a wide range of luxury goods other than pens. Today Montblanc forms part of the Richemont group. Its sister companies include luxury brands Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Chloé, and Baume et Mercier. Montblanc is owned, through Richemont, by the South African Rupert Family.
