Pininfarina Space Pen
PININFARINA SPACE, THE FIRST PININFARINA PRODUCT THAT WENT INTO SPACE.
Pininfarina SPACE is an innovative design Stylus that allows to write limitless, thanks to the tip in Ethergraf®, a patented metal alloy.
This aerodynamic stylus is forged in magnesium, an ultra-light and unique material that offers high mechanical performance.
SPACE has also been studied as a writing instrument suitable for microgravity environments, such as the I.S.S.
The Ethergraf®, of which the tip is made, proved to be an excellent material for writing in these physical conditions.
Pininfarina SPACE was in fact donated to the astronauts, as a personal instrument of writing, during the last space expedition V.I.T.A., a mission that also saw the participation of the Italian Paolo Nespoli.
The operation was possible thanks to a close collaboration with Altec (Aerospace Logistics Technology Engineering Company).
