Ancient Greece mythology was first introduced as a theme for Visconti's creations in 2012 with the legend of Aracnis. Daedalus follows on the same exuberant inspirational path and brings out Visconti's take on this legend.
Daedalus, a skillful architect, and craftsman had built a labyrinth for King Minos in order for him to imprison his wife's son - the Minotaur, part man part bull. Hellenes in his story about the labyrinth depict the Athenian hero - Theseus who is challenged to slay the beast in the labyrinth. Finding his way with the help of Ariadne's thread.
In Homer tales and language "daidala" refers to finely crafted objects. Visconti Daedalus is the embodiment of this tale into a writing instrument. Finely crafted using precious materials and techniques mastered by Visconti over the years.
Visconti Daedalus is showcasing the art of filigree cut-out. A sterling silver overlay is placed over one of the most beautiful blue resins that Visconti featured. The silver overlay features a maze-type structure with interconnecting paths and coming together at circular labyrinth structures. The Minotaur head along with the name "Daedalus" is the main distinguishable features looking down from the clip.
The main body of the fountain pen is made from a splendid blue resin with silver dust in it. Once light reaches this blue resin it makes it glow, light is simply bouncing in the silver dust making the whole pen stand out.
Visconti Daedalus is a limited edition of only 388 pieces, which comes presented in a blue lacquered wood box with glass that can serve as a desk display for the fountain pen. Finely crafted and having a very lightweight for its size - Daedalus is equipped with the Visconti trademark Double Reservoir Power Filler filling mechanism.
