Impeccably engineered, Pininfarina Aero is a unique contemporary writing piece combining innovative design with cutting edge technology. Crafted from high end aerospace materials, it has an unusual form with a hollow centre separating the barrel into two halves.
Its extremely lightweight, brushed metallic aluminium exterior is contrasted with a bold, creating a striking visual contrast. Carefully forged according to the principle of torsion, the barrel twists as it progresses to the tip producing a form evocative of a propeller blade alluding to the design’s aeronautical influences.
The uniqueness of Aero does not end at its form. A writing instrument like no other, it is neither a pen nor a pencil. Its tip is manufactured from Ethergraf; a technologically advanced anodised aluminium alloy which when it comes into contact with paper, oxidises it.
The reaction produces a soft, delicate line like a pencil but is permanent like a pen and removes the need for graphite or ink. The oxidisation process helps prevent deterioration over time producing a writing instrument which can be used indefinitely with no loss of quality. Its twisting infinity profile is a striking contemporary reference to this.
Beautifully tapered at either end ensures the widest part sits neatly in the groove of your hand during use for a comfortable hold. A finishing flourish is the Pininfarina logo engraved elegantly into the barrel. Designed down to the last detail, Aero is a product you’ll never have experienced
INNOVATION – A stunning combination of ergonomic styling and aesthetic detailing, Space demonstrates Pininfarina’s bold, out-of-the-box approach to design with striking contemporary results.
PRESENTATION – Aero is accompanied by an unrefined concrete base, a complete contrast of materials, textures and visual qualities against Aero, it elevates its quality and contemporary styling. Elegantly raised at one end, the concrete base functions as a striking way to display and store the writing instrument when not in use.
THE SCIENCE – The Ethergraf tip microscopically etches into the paper’s surface and the friction created through the contact of the two elements causes the paper to oxidise and produce a soft but permanent line.
QUALITY – With nearly 90 years’ experience, Pininfarina are a symbol for Italian design. Their background in the automobile industry means every product is impeccably engineered and designed to last a lifetime.
