Visconti Pininfarina Iridium Limited Edition Fountain Pen
Since its release back in 2013, the original Visconti “Pininfarina” has been considered a real breakthrough into the fountain pen field. The material it was built with, carbongraphite, was at the same time resistant, light, pleasant to the touch, elegant and sporty to the view. Now comes an exciting new model, the Iridium.
With the Pininfarina Iridium Visconti created a material whose iridescence touches the whole color spectrum, depending on the viewing corner. The body is made of an Avional aluminum with an iridescent PVD color. If beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, so does the Pininfarina Iridium: each time you look at it you’ll always see a different, striking pen.
The stylistic work, set off by Visconti’s technical expertise, has produced an essential article, devoid of any non-functional element, and equipped with innovative technical solutions that emphasize its pure style. These include the rotating nib extraction mechanism, which made it possible to eliminate the cap, and the mechanism that is incorporated in the clip.
The Pininfarina Iridium is a special limited edition; Visconti made only 388 fountain pens/rollerball pens. Nib is Visconti patented Flextouch Chromium 18 Tubular Nib, in black to match the trim of the pen. Filling System: retractile converter. The pen comes in special Iridium packaging.
“Visconti and Pininfarina share the same values: creativity, a passion for beauty, and a striving for innovative solutions. The years of experience that our partner can boast in the field of design, combined with our sound technical skills and a strong propensity for innovation, have enabled us to create an object that opens a new chapter in the field of writing implements”, declared Dante Del Vecchio, Chairman of Visconti.
