To celebrate their 30th anniversary, Visconti is pleased to launch this newest, most affordable regular edition fountain pen collection: the Mirage. Completely made in Florence, Italy, this fountain pen features a nice modern design with all new colors. The Amber resin is a honey yellow color with a light brown dusting. The grip section is made of vegetal resin for a comfortable feeling while writing. The fluidity of the pen is disrupted by hollowed grooves in the body, giving the feel of a "mirage" or an optical illusion. It features Visconti's new steel nib which writes beautifully. A converter is included, and it also accepts standard international short or long cartridges.
Visconti is a brand leader in the design and production of pens that use colors and shapes to reference art, and technological know-how in the treatment of color shades, such as the iconic Rembrandt and Van Gogh collections. The Mirage collection takes another step ahead: even its name declares that art is also a wonderful illusion, not just an imitation, that beauty can be a mirage, of which we can enjoy. This pen is made in a material whose reflections, highlighted by the hollows which originate continuous light effects, create an elusive and illusive object. It is modern in its iridescent lightness: like a great artist Marcel Duchamp declared more than 50 years ago: "Let's enjoy with the beauty of the mirage, because this is what remains to us." The Mirage pen introduces, in addition to a new shape with a modern design, two important innovations for the Visconti production: a new clip, whose manufacturing accentuates the three-dimensionality of the object, and the My Pen System which is not on the cap, but on the bottom of the body, in order to leave in a full view the style of the clip, which "cuts" the cap with its metal structure.
Fully working and ready to write.
