Montegrappa’s Extra Otto “Sapphirus”
MORE IS MORE…Is it possible for the consummate writer’s pen to deliver even more? Few silhouettes answer this question more emphatically than the Extra Otto. High-calibre writing performance lies at the heart of a shape informed by two distinct eras of Italian design excellence. Born out of wistful curiosity, it has quickly become iconic in its own right – proof that the whole is often greater than the sum of its parts.
HEAVENLY WRITING…Montegrappa returns to the age of the Pharaohs with a material the ancient Egyptians worshipped as a source of vitality and divinity…fragments of the goddess Isis. Lapis lazuli has been a staple of jewellery and ornamental design for more than six thousand years. Deep ultramarine, sprinkled with a golden stardust lends celestial character to a silhouette made for heavenly writing.
Limited production numbers reflect ancient ritual and the complexity of crafting a writing instrument from semi-precious stone. 192 pieces reference the Egyptian manuscripts describing the transition to the afterlife. A high-tech, carbon-fibre core is added to a wafer-thin layers of lapis lazuli to provide lightness and strength. Watch as your writing ascends to a higher level.
