Homo Sapiens Ember
Once again Visconti pushes the boundaries of writing technology with the launch of its latest limited edition, the Homo Sapiens ‘Ember’. For the first time in pen history, Visconti has combined fine carbon weaving with copper mesh to create an innovative and unique pen overlay. Visconti has turned this new material into the characteristic design of the Homo Sapiens, a Visconti manufacturing icon.
The material used in the Visconti ‘Ember’ is made using similar production techniques found in the automotive world. 3k carbon fiber is intricately woven with fine copper wire, before being infused with ultra-durable epoxy resins, the same resins used in the production of structural components for formula one race cars and motorbikes.
The Homo Sapiens Ember is limited to just 288 pieces worldwide and available in both fountain pen and rollerball.
