The Tempi Moderni fountain pen is a homage to the famous film 'Modern Times' by Charlie Chaplin, which denounced the inhuman pace of technology. Even today, technology is under indictment, for the artificial intelligence that is supposed to replace man.
Writing by hand is a subversive gesture therefore, and the best way to celebrate the achievements of mankind.
The Pineider Tempi Moderni fountain pen, however, was inspired by the fuselage of the first jet plane with a triangular cross-section and very rounded corners; but also by the fact that the pen is held with 3 fingers, one on each side.
From ergonomic research and design work, the shape of the Tempi Moderni was arrived at: perceived as triangular, it actually has mutant sections, because it starts as an ogive on the cap, continues triangular along the barrel, and ends round at the tail.
Thumb, index and middle finger find the optimal position on the 3 sides of the pen, for a comfortable and pleasant writing experience.
Closure of the cap: double magnet, quick and secure.
Clip: cut-out feather-shaped.
Tempi Moderni has a highly polished resin body and cap, with palladium or rose gold plated finish.
