PINEIDER ARCO DESERT BEETLE BALLPOINT
One of only 888 made, the Arco Desert Beetle ballpoint pen has a rich emerald green barrel decorated with clouds of soft grey, creating a gorgeous gemstone-like appearance. Designed by Dante Del Vecchio in Florence, it has a streamlined form and bold tones reminiscent of classic 20th century fountain pens.
Arco is crafted from a blend of transparent and opaque resin layers bonded by a golden glue. It is then turned on a lathe at a 4 degree slant to produce a barrel with a semi-transparent, iridescent finish. A number of polished palladium plated trims contrast this striking aesthetic, such as the iconic Pineider quill clip.
Completed with delicately engraved feather lines, this slim clip is spring loaded for ease when sliding into pockets. The centre band is delicately engraved with the Pineider name and the cap top is a pressed with a circular finial, beautifully completing the design.
INNOVATION – A striking example of how Pineider are bringing writing instruments into the 21st Century, Arco combines classic styling with contemporary manufacturing processes, engineering and colour palettes to produce a pen with universal appeal.
PORTABLE DESK SET – Arco comes in a rich, pine green trapezium-like box also containing Pineider paper and watermarked envelopes. The box opens from the top outwards via two lids, transforming into a portable desk area. The pen sits above on a leatherette lining whilst the paper and envelopes sit below.
SPECIFICATION – This pen can be used with Parker-style refills. Crafted from high grade resin to ensure aesthetic and functional longevity.
QUALITY – The beautifully minimalist and artistic style of Pineider products alludes to the sculptural influences of Francesco Pineider, the brands creator. Impeccable engineering, attention to detail and the very best materials are guaranteed features of every Pineider product.
