New Viscosnti Pentagon Fountain Pen.
The Pentagon pen stands unalterable, sober and powerful like light and space that ancient Greek temples transmute into matter. That does not imply it is also static: the 5 surfaces make it look stable and let the pen not to roll but, at the same time, the perspective asymmetry of the pentagon is quite dynamic, if considering the new clip as the only way to put a side first compared to others.
• The Golden Number: the proportion between the length of the cap and the body tends to the divine proportion, maintaining that percentage of imprecision which is proper of human nature.
• The Pentagram: the pentagonal section, which characterizes the pen itself, converges into the pure shape of circumference at both ends.
• The Nautilus or "Spirale d'oro": according to the Fibonacci formula, spiral is here developed and spread in a harmonious movement which fades to the circles of tops of the cap and the blind cap. These elements merge, like for Divina, in an alchemy of shapes and proportions, in a pen that can be defined elegant but static, powerful: its antiquity, like the one of the Roman and Greek temples, is timeless, so deeply hidden today in our culture that it can be confused with humanity itself.
The clip determines an orientation, a directionality in its static symmetry, favoring one of the five sides over others and thus introducing a hidden dynamism: if rotated on its longitudinal axis, the Pentagon changes continuously, looking unusually asymmetric.
The pen can be fitted with Visconti’s My Pen System to personalize your pen.
