Sourcing inspiration from the Visconti archives, this limited edition is modeled after one of Visconti's most memorable and complex designs: the Skeleton.
The first collection, launched more than 20 years ago, was characterized by a filigree design based on the combination of the stylized Visconti logo. Today, this new writing instrument brings the "skeletonisation" technique back to its original inspiration, the human skeleton. As if taken from an X-ray, the sterling silver filigree of organic design stands out against a contrasting colored resin, outlining the shape of the 12 pairs of ribs joined to the spine.
The collection is a tribute to Visconti's precious internal workmanship, developed throughout the history of the brand and is available in 2 vibrant colorways:
Ruby red shimmer resin with ruthenium trims
Sapphire blue shimmer resin with palladium trims
The Skeleton 2023 collection is limited to 388 pieces worldwide and is available for order.
The design of the Skeleton demonstrates one of Visconti's greatest skills, the artisanal craftsmanship of the cut out filigree from a single tube of solid sterling silver, and the ability to achieve intricate details with absolute precision. Visconti began crafting filigrees back in 1993 with the launch of the Visconti Uffizi and over the years has refined and improved the technique with pens like the Ripple or the Watermark.
