Design: The design is inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s fascination with the idea of human flight with each detail taken from the numerous studies he produced for his elaborate flying devices. The cap and barrel are crafted from anodised aluminium, a reference to the material now used to build aeroplanes. The polished platinum-plated fittings are reproductions of da Vinci’s studies for wedge connections, which he used to assemble two different materials in his inventions. The shape on the cone refers to the double movement transmission conceived by da Vinci more than 500 years ago. The red gold-plated gear at the end of the clip is reminiscent of the many cogwheels the Italian master used in his designs. The nib, handcrafted in solid 750 gold and rhodium plated, is engraved with one of da Vinci’s famous drawings of the bat, whose wings he studied to develop his flying machine. Finally, the forefront of the pen is etched with his sketch of a mechanical wing.
