The deep connection that links man to nature in Asian philosophy is portrayed through the pen’s bamboo stem shape. This noble plant is renowned for its ability to combat pollution.

Bamboo is a strong and flexible plant that can thrive in any environment. For these reasons, it represents mental flexibility and fluidity of thought.
Shizen means nature in Japanese. Learning about other cultures can open up new horizons and allow us to see our own world in a new light. We have let ourselves be guided by oriental philosophies in which the relationship between man and nature is based on the perfect balance and the highest expression of vital harmony. This unconventional collection took inspiration from the centuries-old fascination with the Orient. The fountain pen is reminiscent of a bamboo stalk.
Celluloid is a refined material that has been used to create writing instruments since the beginning of the 20th century. It is pleasing to the touch and has a comfortable grip. Asia is available in 3 colours: blue, green and red. The pen alternates 5 stacked coloured celluloid sections and 5 solid black ones.
The shape of the Asia collection follows the elegant and pleasing lines of the evergreen and vigorous bamboo. To emphasise its slender shape, the pen’s body and cap are exactly the same dimension. The 8 metal rings that decorate the pen are made of silver Ag925.
