The history of the product

To celebrate the 139 days spent in orbit at 400km from the earth, together with the Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli and the crew of the International Space Station, it has been realized a limited and numbered 300-piece edition dedicated to the Mission V.I.T.A. Pininfarina SPACE is a Stylus entirely made of magnesium, a unique ultra-light material that offers high mechanical performance. SPACE has been designed to be used in microgravity environments, such as the ISS international space station. The Ethergraf® alloy of which its tip is made, is able to write in these physical conditions in complete safety, in fact the hardness of the metal avoids the loss of graphite debris that would float dangerously in the space station. The operation was possible thanks to a close collaboration with ALTEC (Aerospace Logistics Technology Engineering Company).

  • Technology

    The ETHERGRAF® tip microscopically “scratches” paper oxidizing it and leaving a light but indelible stretch.
    Due to its porosity, the common paper – that is the cellulose not trated paper (formed by vegetable fibers bonded through a process that is called “felting”)- is in fact a material which perfectly reacts to the passage of the metal tip.
    The presence of bonding agents, mineral fillers, dyes or additives in paper compromises its natural absorption capacity. The consequence is that the oxidation of the tip is not allowed, or only partially allowed, at the transit of the ETHERGRAF® tip.
