Pineider is pleased to introduce the 2019 Avatar collection, designed by Dante Del Vecchio, that marks a step ahead in pen manufacturing that involves the material with the revolutionary UltraResin, the assembling with the new process called GlueLess, and the special protection of the cap lock.
Over the last 100 years in the pen industry, the solution to breakages came from the incredible features of celluloid, the sole material able to join incredible beauty and a very high resistance to hits. In the 1920's, pen makers would throw pens from an airplane to demonstrate the resistance of celluloid to hits. Unfortunately celluloid has a very bad resistance to heat and can easily crystallize with age, that brings to the complete loss of the pen, and is extremely difficult to make.
Introducing UltraResin, a mother of pearl compound resin in a special formula, developed in Florence for Pineider. This compound is very stiff and its exceptional features makes it widely better than celluloid, the historical material of the pen industry. UltraResin is extremely rigid, nearly like metal, incredibly resistant to hits, very close to call it unbreakable, resistant to oils, inks, electricity, to high and low temperatures, to UV rays, to any weathering condition.
Pineider technicians made this material suitable for luxury products with an extremely gloss surface, mother of pearl look with marbleized colors, deep black, or even a clear material. UltraResin sets you free from the mess of a pen drop and cracks that most of time is the beginning of a nightmare that often end with returns, complaints and expenses. It is also resistant to heat, a weak point of Celluloid, which makes UltraResin suitable to all seasons and climate hot or cold.
To produce the new Avatar, a new assembly technology has been developed called GlueLess. Thanks to 3D engineering and high precision manufacturing, the pen is assembled without using a single drop of glue. A technological puzzle! Every component precisely fit each other by simple framed parts.
This pen closes via a magnetic twist cap. A film over the internal magnet has the function to protect the magnet from corrosion and allows a soft touch closure.
A sophisticated solid marine steel clip comprised from inner spring and mechanism built in the cap top of the pen.
Finely engraved and inspired from the skyline of Florence The trim is palladium plated and nickel free.
Rhodium-plated #6 size steel nib with a new futuristic Pineider engraved logo.
Just like an avatar becomes a virtual alter ego for an individual, this pen is designed to serve as an inseparable lifestyle companion. The rounded form and vibrant color represents the dynamic vitality of youth. The marine steel clip is Pineider’s interpretation of a goose quill, sturdy yet flexible. While each pen is designed to become the alter ego of its owner, Pineider designed the centerband to be the avatar of the city it has proudly called home for the last 240 years, Florence, in honor of the love and affection all Florentines have for the firm’s illustrious name.
