Product Description

Visconti Limited Edition Torpedo Cobalt Rollerball

Visconti Torpedo 
Influenced by the Streamline 
Modern style of the 1930s, the "Bolidismo" design trend was introduced by a group of young graduates from the faculty of Architecture of the University of Florence in the mid-1980s. The movement's design elements are seen in architecture that is strongly influenced by the world of car design, including the Torpedo model that was popular in the 1930s. The Torpedo's name alludes to both the model of car and the English term for torpedo, an illustration of a shape designed for movement and speed.
 
For their latest reincarnation Visconti sourced 'cobalt blue' unidirectional carbon graphitea material commonly used in the automotive sector, and added trims in rose gold or ruthenium plating.
 
The Torpedo is designed in an ogival shape with a round and tapered end. The writing instrument is powerful and aerodynamic, combining two stylistic components of Visconti's high end pens: a demonstrator within a skeleton body. The demonstrator design allows the user to see the internal filling system and ink through the transparent openings, located between the metal covers and the skeleton body. The skeleton body features a transparent acrylic resin designed to align with the carbon graphite, contributing to the fluidity of the design and alluding to elements of movement and energy.
 
The Torpedo collection is limited to just 288 pieces worldwide and available in a fountain pen and rollerball.
