Pininfarina Cambiano Leonardo Drawing with Ethergraf pen
€99.00 (including VAT) €79.84 (excluding VAT)
ETHERGRAF, the modern heir of Silverpoint, is an innovative metal alloy which leaves a light and romantic mark like graphite, but timeless like ink.
This Pininfarina Cambiano limited edition celebrates Leonardo’s genius in his scientific approach to drawing. According to Da Vinci, the observation of natural phenomena and their representation on paper is an instrument of knowledge able to naturally connect disciplines that are very distant from each other. Artist, scientist, engineer and humanist, Leonardo had a multifaceted personality nourished by an ever-evolving curiosity.
His seemingly un-math-related famous Self-Portrait was actually realized according to the expanding pattern of a logarithmic spiral. This mathematical figure, emblem of the golden ratio, is recurrent in nature, from the structure of a simple shell to the shape of galaxies, and it is a universal symbol of perfection.

• Designed by Pininfarina The ETHERGRAF tip takes inspiration from the special technique of the silver tip, used by Leonardo da Vinci. Created thanks to the cooperation with leading Italian researchers, it takes advantage of the oxidation caused by the friction between paper and metal tip, bringing it to a new level. Conceived, realized and hand-forged in Italy, ETHERGRAF is the hallmark of our styluses. The ETHERGRAF tip microscopically “scratches” paper, oxidizing it and thus leaving a light but precise mark. Thanks to its porosity, common paper - that is to say paper in non-treated cellulose - perfectly reacts to the passage of the metal tip.
