Visconti is delighted to present their latest limited edition collection, 'QWERTY'. A pen inspired by the alphanumeric keyboard patented in 1864 by Christopher Sholes. With this pen, Visconti pays homage to a timeless system, born with typewriters, but still present today in everyday life.
Sholes designed his keyboard with the key objective to help people type faster. His solution was to separate commonly used letter pairings, such as "ST," to avoid ‘typewriter jams’, effectively allowing the typist to type faster, rather than slower.
Sholes named his keyboard 'Qwerty', which spells out the first six 'letter' keys of his iconic keyboard system.
The Qwerty collection features:
Visconti was inspired by the first Remington typewriters when crafting the limited edition Qwerty box. The upper part, complete with a hinged opening in aged-silver, contains a red and black glass ink bottle. The lower section, where the writing instrument is stored, has a magnetic closure system and a glass window that allows a glimpse of the pen. The lid is embellished with aged-silver and ivory enameled keys that make up the word Qwerty. The case also showcases an aged-silver plaque with the Visconti logo, reminiscent of typewriter strikers.
The Qwerty fountain pen and rollerball are available for pre-order now!
