As a result of several years of internal struggles in PARAFERNALIA, we managed to direct PARAFERNALIA to concentrate on Design. 1971 Alchimia Studio an architect company of that time, requested a pen with an extreme design (HI-TECH) no one at PARAFERNALIA thought it might be done. The philosophy behind Design is primarily the optimization, the essentiality, the aesthetics that inspire the draawing of an object.
PARAFERNALIA asked for a pen that was unsellable, a courageous image. I started to work with what was HI-TECH at the time, that was to show the technical parts, the mechanism, the guts of the instrument (just like the Centre Pompidou Beaubourg of that time) and design the shape of the fitting around it (just like Pininfarina was being asked to shape a Ferrari car around the powerful engines in order for it to perform efficiently). An innovative pen, entirely hand-made with 31 miniaturized metallic components and push mechanism just like the most complex race cars. The great innovative impact, the ultimate design and structure set apart who owns it.For this reason, the pen was called REVOLTION and with great astonishment to everyone, it revealed to be a great commercial success which, even today characterizes the PARAFERNALIA brand. Revolution proposes itself today as a unique and contemporary writing object. Writing Instruments: PARAFERNALIA stems from the fantasies of 1964 from the inspirations of the swinging London. Opens as a shop (PARAPHERNALIA) in the district of BRERA in Milan, specialising in contemporary gadgets and continuing into promotional material in Modern Design.
The first pen concept from PARAPHERNALIA Design was a special demand from DOMUS magazine requesting for a "built it yourself" type pen. At the MACEF exposition of that year, a black monolith rises in the corner of the PARAPHERNALIA stand.Behind a Plexiglas window in the monolith, aluminium objects can be previewed, the first PARAPHERNALIA writing instruments are presented to the public (AL13). POWER IN WRITING PARAFERNALIA have reconfirmed their HI-TECH spirit by combining the newest HI-TECH technologies to the extreme design of their production. Racing engines worthy of the best Italian chassis. WARM COLOURS : TRENDY The pen: a small object that speaks about us In this era of laptop computers, cellular phones with SMS, fax machines and other technological gadgets, the pen remains the king of the writing expression. Fountain pen or ballpoint, it is the most simple and usual tool for writing.
But the pen is no longer just a simple writing instrument, it has become an important accessory in our daily life. In the pocket of a vest, in a leather bag, in the revolver-pocket of a jeans, or even on our desk, this little accessory characterizes us, represents us and renders our image complete.
The pen is an accessory that we choose by ourselves. By the pen we use, we can send out an idea of our personality, of our tastes, much better than by our wristwatch, our lighter, our tie holder or even our wallet. A pen can also be an original gift, that we choose in regards to the tastes of whom will receive it.
