Wroooooom Wroooommm Dear Readers,
Today I was wondering, if anyone remembers such beauty as Ferrari 250 GT SWB or Ferrari Dino. If not, what about Jaguar XJ-S? Still nothing? I am surprised. Maybe Ferrari Testarossa? Come on. Let’s move to late nineties and Ford Focus or Peugeot 406 Coupe. Yes, I knew it 🙂 If you are a sports car fan for sure you can recognise Honda NSX (and unforgetable Ayrton Senna). But definitivelly you should know, from recent years, Ferrari Enzo or Ferrari 458 Italia. Beauty, beauty, beauty. All these cars have one common issue and it is the legendary desing house – Pininfarina. Applause!
But what Pininfarina has in common with writing instruments?
For example, Visconti has made a very interesting fountain pen designed by … Pininfarina.
But today I will show you something different.
Ladies and Gentelmen please give a warm welcome to …
What it is? Is it the … inkless pen that won’t ever need inking? Or maybe eons lasting the pencil? Where is the lead? There is no lead and it still writes!
It works due to so called the Ethergraf tip which is patented metallic alloy that makes, due to oxidation process, a permanent marks on paper. To explain “oxidation” in the easiest way, it is a loss of electrons. It could be very positive (as in this product) or could be destructive as for example a bloody red rust on the car.
This beautiful piece of art was desined by Pininfarina team which was led by design manager Paolo Trevisan. Inspiration was a concept car called Cambiano.
Look at the details. Aren’t they elegant with a delicate mixture of classic and contemporary trends? This walnut case can be used as a presentation base.
Elegant and beautifull, isn’t it? And that feel of used materials, natural wood (walnut) and pure technical aluminium in this case galvanic treatment Lucid Black.
