The material is inspired by the “Lance Cusp” used by ancient warriors in the centuries VII-VI BC.
In fact, the pattern present in acrylic in the darker parts recalls the curve of the spear tip.
The realization of the resin “Cuspide” is an important step to the research and production and is also stimulating for future projects. The effect of depth and texture is given by the assembly of about 10/15 sheets of acrylic, the fusion of these sheets about 1 or 2mm high is obtained through a casting of dark resin that will become our cusp only after a complex oblique cut of the sheet.
The decoration on the central band Like the previous collection “Speranza” there is the geometric pattern that will be shown on the limited collections only and for the whole year 2020, for next year and the following ones, the design will be different.
The decoration is reminiscent of the period known in the history of art as “Geometric Art” and therefore means the production of decorations of Greek civilization between 900 and 700 BC, which takes its name from the term traditionally used for ceramic production of the same period.
The fountain pen is supplied with a 40ml bottle of blue ink and a lifetime warranty on any manufacturing defect.
