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.
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. The Pineider Avatar UR 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 and is inspired by a goose quill. The center band ring of the Avatar pen is inspired by the skyline of Florence, which is the origin city of the Pineider brand.
Like the virtual world, “Avatar” stands for the alter ego. This Italian pen collection from Pineider aims to be the writer’s extension of themselves. Whether you ghost write under a pseudonym or bare yourself to all in your words, the hope is that this pen will be the vehicle that manifests your creativity on paper.
The Pineider Avatar fountain pen has a stainless steel nib and uses an ink cartridge or a converter.
