Pininfarina Segno represents the horizon of an innovative and unique scenario in the writing experience. The PF TWO rises from the intention to create timeless beauty, typical of Pininfarina design, enhanced by continuous innovation and new technical solutions. PF TWO represents the second chapter of “Design Writing” project, the collection of unique accessories thought to go above and beyond the mere utility: where the product’s essential function is just the first step. Pure and fluid lines are the main distinctive elements of this fountain pen. The retractable clip allows the body and cap to be perfectly integrated as if drawn by a clean single stroke. The design of the magnetic interlocking echoes the fluid lines of the pen body while ensuring a firm closure and a satisfying sound when the two parts come together.
