Now that Montegrappa have their first century behind them, and understand the significance of memories and achievements garnered through the passage of the time. The memorable friendships they have built along the way coupled with family relationships that have made the brand what it is today, it seems fitting that the Italian luxury manufacturer has created a collection of pens that allows them and now us to remember and chronicle all of these special times.
These memories and moments define our lives and the Memoria collection has been so named to encourage its users to appreciate their own histories, to reflect upon their pasts while anticipating their futures. The inspiration for the Memoria collection is a pen of the 1990s, re-styled according to the most recent design criteria. The pens are a contemporary classic, designed to enhance the experience of each moment, whether personal or public, quiet or spectacular. To increase the significance of one’s Memoria pen, the collection has been expanded with further choices, a selection of surface finishes for further personalising the form to better suit the individual. Made with caps and barrels in sterling silver with the standard pinstripe or satin finish, the pens from the Memoria series are available in versions with solid black or ivory resin barrels. To increase their appeal, the standard engraved finishes have been joined by the exclusive “Gothic”, “Filigree” and “Lozenge” engine-turned designs.
Each of the new finishes adorns a Memoria pen with a pattern of added complexity or geometric allure, the choice allowing one to exercise a visual expression ranging from the serious to the gleeful. The Gothic pattern’s interwoven circles, the Filigree’s octagons and the Lozenge’s mosaic effect are captivating and intricate, a marriage of artisan skill and artistic expression, applied to an object that the owner will cherish, yet use daily. Forever.
