The new FEEL Graniglia and Verde Antico are inspired by the material effects and colours of late 19th century.
Graniglia (grit), a generic name for stones or other substances reduced to small fragments used in industry, is one of the first materials created through the recycling of marble and stone processing waste, which is bound with cement, colored with natural oxides and mixed with water.
Just like many traditional Italian dishes, the Graniglia tile originated as a poor man’s product. The infinite possibilities of decorating with borders and carpets that enrich the plain colors, have allowed and still allow the production of very high-quality floors that distinguish the most beautiful floors in Italy and around the world.
Grey, blue, brown and green shades characterize the colors of this material and, together with platinum trim, give life to our FEEL Graniglia.
Green color in particular, which was widely used in paintings, ceramics and glass during the same historical period which saw the birth of the artistic movement known as Art Noveau (between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century), is the protagonist of our FEEL Verde Antico. This is also enriched with platinum trim that nicely accompanies the lighter streaks of the fountain pen body.
Verde Antico (vintage green) is obtained by combining blue with desaturated yellow and a substantial grey component. A soft shade, between aquatic and wild, strongly reminiscent of nature and conveying serenity and harmony.
FEEL Graniglia and Verde Antico are also produced in 219 pieces per color and are available with all SCRIBO nibs.
