The idea of combining the classic and the innovative, of bringing these ideal opposites together and satisfying different needs and tastes with a single object, was inevitably an irresistible challenge that Stipula has risen to with its characteristic elegance and imagination. The Suprema collection is triggered by the evolution of one of the most successful innovative models, the 22, purified of its less traditional aspects and brought back to the classic taste of a timeless and ageless writing instrument.
The Suprema collection features the Torricelli Air Pump filling system that can be fully appreciated through a transparent and capacious ink reservoir. Using this special pump system, the air inside the chamber of the barrel is forced out through the channels in the nib feeder and therefore, allowing ink to completely fill the transparent body.
Today Stipula is proud to announce the introduction of a new limited edition beside Suprema Nuda.
Suprema Bikini maintains the clear barrel and adds a magnificent red-black striped ebonite over the cap, grip and knob. A perfect match of colours and finishes, a “now you see me, now you don’t” concept highlighted by the name of the fountain pen. The pen presents a titanium nib, available in a unique flexible size. Titanium is a metal with a great performance in terms of accuracy, flexibility and lightness. This one size T-Flex nib allows for perfect writing at any type of pressure.
Suprema Bikini is a limited edition of 351* pieces each individually numbered.
*351 is the length of Palazzo Pitti façade calculated in “Florentine arms”, an ancient Florentine length measure used during Renaissance. A Florentine arm corresponds to 0.586 meters. MSRP on the Stipula Suprema Bikini Limited Edition Fountain Pen with Titanium Nib $485
