Visconti Homo Sapiens Ember Limited Edition Fountain Pen KP15-19-FP
HOMO SAPIENS EMBER
From the complex interweaving of carbon and copper wires comes the new limited edition Homo Sapiens Ember collection.
Inspired by the incandescent lava bursting out of the volcano at the moment of eruption, this writing instrument is a symbol of nature’s power and liveliness.
The intertwining of copper and carbon threads echo the luminosity and dynamism of magma in its liquid state. The combination of these elements and the bronze metalwork recalls lava, the absolute protagonist of the Homo Sapiens collection. This fusion of matter gives the pen an elegant, weathered and decisive look.
HERITAGE AND INNOVATION
The uniqueness and innovative side of this Homo Sapiens pen derives from the use of 3k carbon and processing techniques taken from the automotive world. These technical elements are combined with iconic Visconti features such as the Power Filler filling system and the 18 kt gold nib produced in-house.
Visconti has selected the compression moulding technique, often used in the production of high-performance automotive components, to process the pen’s materials. This technique maintains the materials’ mechanical characteristics yet allows us to reach specific aesthetic results.
This version of Visconti's iconic clip inspired by the Ponte Vecchio is made of polished bronze and embellished with an elegant black enamel.
