This collection is inspired by an architectural and design movement called Bolidismo that focuses on the fluidity and movement of shapes. It was started in the 80s by a group of young architecture graduates from the University of Florence.
The Torpedo fountain pen is futuristic, dynamic, and capable. This original and trendsetting interpretation of a demonstrator pen will win you over with its fluid and stylish lines.
LIMITED EDITION to 388 pieces worldwide
A torpedo isn’t only a self-propelled underwater projectile, but also a famous car model from the first part of the 20th century. We have chosen to use Bolidismo concepts to interpret the two meanings of the word.
DYNAMISM AND FLUIDITY
The pen’s ogival shape lends dynamism and fluidity to the design. This writing instrument uses two elements of our high-end collections: the skeleton and demonstrator techniques. The carbon fiber of the barrel and cap perfectly integrates with the galvanised brass structure and the resin reservoir.
The carbon is treated with a catalysed impregnating agent which protects the surface without adding any thickness to the pen since it is completely absorbed by the fiber. The internal part of the barrel is made in transparent resin while the external part is in carbon. The "skeleton" structure is in in perforated metal. All the brass parts are produced with CNC machines and then hand polished, engraved and perforated. The metal parts can be plated in two colours: pink gold and ultra black ruthenium.
THE SKELETON TECHNIQUE
The skeleton technique characterises some of our most prestigious pens. This method makes it possible to forge a structure (or skeleton) around the barrel and cap of the writing instrument, giving it an elegant and luminous three-dimensional effect.
CLIP AND PACKAGING
The arched clip is embellished with a refined mother of pearl coloured lacquer.
The Torpedo presentation box is made of a blue metal plate that echoes the brass structure of the pen.
