The dictionary defines the word as whatever form of activity engaged by man that brings out his inventive talent and his expressive capabilities. The Manipolo ballpoint pen from Italian designer Giuliano Mazzuoli is formed from aluminum bar stock.The crude aluminum bar slowly mutates and takes form. It is pierced and shaped to the point where the finishing touches transform it into a pen. It's as if the pen was always in that piece of aluminum but it just needed someone to pull it out of there. Giuliano Mazzuoli creates an object of art with technical characteristics based on research and experience that are able to combine design and function.
The highlights of the pen are the beautifully crafted solid aluminum shape, with finger depressions for comfortable writing and the smooth advance / retract mechanism operated by twisting the cap top.
Complete with handsome gift box. Includes one refill (Fisher Space Pen type) installed in the pen. The refill is replaced by unscrewing the tip cone from the barrel.
