The Pineider Homage to Arman Trilogy is one of the three limited edition pens that honors the work of Arman Fernandez. Arman was one of the greatest exponents of Nouveau Réalisme, an artistic trend based on narrating mankind through his everyday objects (shoes, wristwatches, coins and so forth). In consideration of the multiple techniques that he used, Arman is thought of as a painter-sculptor. He himself was to define himself perfectly as “un peintre qui fait de la sculpture”. Like Arman’s objects, so our fountain pens tell the story of man through the creation of everyday items, using the concepts of multiple slashes and of accumulati- ons constantly intersecting in the three models.
Trilogy encapsulates the concept of slices and multiples by repeating the slicing motif every 120 degrees and thus generating a multi- ple, symbolising accumulation and repetition.
The object of this repetition is a feather, the symbol of Pineider’s entire range and a fetish of writing in the broadest sense of the term, with a doppler effect extending from the clip to the cap and barrel. The clip is a skeletal feather where voids and solids play on the style of Arman, emphasising the feather’s proportions, thus each pen – Night & Day, Trilogy and Doppler – contains the exact morpho- logy of its accumulation or of its break. The cap features Pineider’s exclusive Twist Mechanic Lock, a new pen closure system that combines the pleasure of the screw cap with the security of a magnetic closure.
The Homage to Arman edition comes in a gift box with a special wooden pen stand designed by Dante del Vechhio. The Trilogy is limited to only 300 pieces worldwide.
The Pineider Homage to Arman fountain pen has the unique Hyperflex nib in 14K gold: its a breakthrough design that gives the quill-cut nib a superb flex and smooth flow for expressive writing.
