Visconti presents us the first edition of 2021, the Homo Sapiens collection inspired by the beauty of colored gemstones.
For this collection, their inspiration were the emeralds, rubies and sapphires - the most sought-after gems, admired for their rich colours for thousands of years. Forged under intense pressure and heath in the depths of earth, gems are a symbol of strength, beauty and resilience.
The new Homo Sapiens Demo Stones fountain pens have their true power born out their natural encounter with light, which gives life to their transparency, density, splendour and fluidity. Three individual colors form the palette : Emerald - Green, Sapphire - Blue, Ruby - Red.
Each Demo Stones pen is design, made and polished in Visconti's Florentine workshop. The barrel and cap are made of fine acrylic resin. Transparency is not purely an aesthetic choice, but also a way to reveal the beating heart of the demonstrator pen: the Power Filler Double Reservoir filling system, patented by Visconti in 1998.
The collection is also enriched by coloured stones placed on the pen cap: green agate, blue agate and carnelian stone to emulate the three inspirational gem colours of the pen's body.
Each Demo Stones Homo Sapiens is equipped with the in house made 14k Gold nib from Visconti. Pick the nib size that you like from the following : Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and a 1.3mm Stub.
*Every pen/nib is checked prior to be sent out, every nib will be inspected and adjusted if its needed, if you have certain aspects regarding the desired writing experience - email us this info at email@example.com.
