VISCONTI DIVINA ELEGANCE OVER GREEN FOUNTAIN PEN, 1.3MM STUB NIB
- Code : KP18-01-FPS
- Brand : VISCONTI
- Collection : DIVINA
- Mechanism : Fountain Pen
Visconti Divina is a collection of very innovative writing instruments that carries in its DNA, the Italian Renaissance, by Leonardo da Vinci and its golden number or ratio (1,618), which is said to transmit the key of knowledge and of beauty. Visconti applied the golden ratio for the first time to a writing instrument in the Divina pen: this generated a revolutionary design changing the aesthetic canons of fountain pens.
The inspiring concepts are: The Golden Number, the Pentagram, and the Nautilus.
~The Golden Number: Here is the ratio between the length of cap and pen in both open and close conditions reflecting the divine proportion.
~The Pentagram: it is part of the form of the pen itself, of course adapted to the ergonomic needs of a writing instrument.
~The Nautilus or “Golden Spiral”: according to the Fibonacci Series, the Golden Spiral harmoniously envelops the pen.
These elements melt together in alchemy of forms and proportions to make a pen that can be defined as the fifth essence of elegance: so, modern to seam timeless, so ancient to seam supernatural. In one word: Divina.
The collection was launched during a Festival in Cannes (2005) together with the movie "The Da Vinci Code". It was gifted to the celebrity Hollywood star Tom Hanks main actor of the movie.
The Golden number originally codified from Leonardo in the XIV Century, is a number already present in nature and it reveals the beauty of the proportion
~The collection is designed following the rules of the golden number where the cap is 0.618 times the entire length of the pen itself
~It has a pentagon shape as it represents the union of the four elements giving birth to the fifth element that is divine
~The shape is a spiral shape as revokes the nautilus that is another symbol of divine proportion
~All the materials used in this collection are precious. Green resin that is a compound of acrylic resin.
~Spiral is filled with solid bronze
~ The metal trims are plated with rose gold
~The fountain pen features Visconti Palladium 23kt, engraved, 1.3mm stub large nib. The solid palladium nib is plated with rose gold
~The filling system is Pull & Turn piston with retractable actuator
~The pen is provided with the Visconti patented "Hook safe" lock system, which allows the user to close the pen by rotating it by only 20°, thus making it absolutely impossible to open the cap by chance
~The top of each pen displays a circular metal Visconti logo as standard, held in place with a strong magnetic force. The logo can be removed and be replaced with one of the following elements, Initials, Zodiac Symbols and Natural Stones.
