View our range of Visconti Divina Collection below
The Divina collection from Visconti are, to say the least, distinctive writing implements. All are based on the 'Golden Number' or 'Divine Ratio' (1.618), an irrational number that has fascinated mathematicians for many centuries. It is found in nature, and has been used by architects to design buildings and rooms that look and feel "right". In all three versions of these writing implements, the Visconti Divina fountain pens and Visconti Divina rollerballs have pen bodies that are 1.618 times the length of the cap, producing pens that also look and feel "right".
Even in the cases of the Visconti Divina ballpoint pen and the Visconti Divina mechanical pencil - which do not have caps - the Golden number still plays a part in the distinctive decoration of these luxury writing implements, as each one has five spirals of silver chased around the barrel. The Elegance series are made from either a mixture of blue and blue-black, or tawny and dark brown acrylic resins, with a lot of pearlescence. The Divina Black writing implements, as the name suggests, are rather starker in appearance, though still with a deep shine to the basic material. The Divina Desert Spring range have an intriguing mixture of sandy base colours with blue highlights that suggest water in the desert, still overlayed by the silver spiral patterns.
The Visconti Divina fountain pens and Visconti Divina rollerball pens all have caps that fasten with the Visconti bayonet-style "hook and lock" system that hold the pen closed securely without a lot of screw threading. All of the writing implements in the Divina collection feature the distinctive Ponte Vecchio arched bridge clip.
Altogether inspired by the "Divine ratio" the Visconti Divina series is an inspired creation of skilled designers, executed by master craftsmen, made in Italy.
The Visconti Divina range are a delight to look at, to hold, and all of the fountain pens in the collection use the 23kt Palladium "Dreamtouch" nib, which makes them a delight to write with.
