DIVINA ELEGANCE COLLECTION
This writing instrument plays with the classical aesthetic standards and elevates them. It is inspired by the four natural elements from which a fifth supernatural one emerges. The pen’s pentagonal shape recalls these five elements.
The Divina Elegance collection stands out in great part due to its silver inlays. Constructing the pen is a long and lengthy process because each silver appointment has to be inserted manually, one at a time. Though the process is arduous, it transforms the Divina Elegance writing instrument into a unique and refined jewel.
Every pen has 10 silver inlays. By the end of the process, should but one be defective, hours of work are lost since the pen is no longer salvageable.
THE GOLDEN RATIO, THE NAUTILUS AND PENTAGRAM
The Divina Elegance collection takes its inspiration and shape from three fundamental elements: the golden ratio, the nautilus and the pentagram. The relationship between the length of the cap and pen (both capped and uncapped) follow the golden ratio. The pen’s structure is built according to a Fibonacci nautilus while its shape, though slightly adapted for ergonomic reasons, resembles a pentagram.
Visconti have chosen acrylic resin to make the Divina Elegance rollerball pen. This material lends itself well to interesting effects such as pearlescent highlights. The anti-tarnish silver alloy preserves the metal parts of the pen from oxidation.
The creation of the Divina Elegance fountain pen is a time consuming process that requires a lot of experience and skill. The master artisans start by creating the resin body of the pen with computer numerical control machines. Grooves are added with a special tool which are then manually filled with silver inlays. After a 48 hour exsiccation process, the writing instrument is checked once more my the CNC machine and polished.
