Who would have thought that an Italian car design company and coachbuilder which has worked with some of the automobile world’s biggest names like Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, and Lancia, would be responsible for a pen…an inkless one. Pininfarina debuted its 4.EVER Pininfarina Cambiano at Paperworld, the world’s leading fair for stationary and writing instruments.
Working with Italian homeware company, Napkin, Pininfarina created the 4.EVER Pininfarina Cambiano. The writing instrument has a tip made of Ethergraph (a special metal alloy patented by Chic Trading). Pininfarina says that the 4.EVER Pininfarina Cambiano can “write indefinitely with no ink and no refill” and that it has a precise stroke like that of a pencil, which cannot be erased like that of a pen.
A pen/pencil that can allegedly write indefinitely, the 4.EVER Pininfarina Cambiano doesn’t just sound intriguing, it looks spectacular too. With clean elegant lines and curves inspired by the Cambiano concept car, and the generous use of aluminum and wood, Pininfarina’s expertise in design enhances the appeal of this revolutionary writing instrument. The 4.EVER Pininfarina Cambiano will be matched with a notebook made of stone paper – manufactured from the stone powder, stronger than the traditional one and water resistant.
“The pencil and notebook are the fundamental designer’s stock-in-trade. We wanted to create, with Napkin’s collaboration, a kit addressed to all the people who love design and innovation, giving life, at the same time, to a timeless object with the typical traits if the Pininfarina style: elegance, purity and innovations.” affirms Paolo Pininfarina, CEO of Pininfarina.
