The resultant writing instrument features all of the many signature details of Montegrappa products, including the clip with roller for easy ingress to and egress from pockets, while the octagonal shape has long been a part of the Italian house’s design language.
It was in 2012, the year of its centenary, that Montegrappa revived the use of the eight-sided geometric shape that recurs throughout its designs. That shape now characterises numerous Montegrappa writing instruments, including the Reminiscence, the Privilege, the Symphony, the Emblema and the NeroUno, with the Extra 1930 joining them in 2014.
To create the Extra Otto, Montegrappa applied the octagonal cross-section to the legendary Extra 1930, which immediately produced a new and complementary alternative look to a revered classic. The octagon is the example of geometric perfection that has long provided Montegrappa with a timeless motif, one that also provides its own unique feel and level of comfort for writers who bond with their favourite pens.
Made of celluloid, the natural material that is employed in the manufacture of the finest pen barrels and caps, Extra Otto is offered as both a fountain pen and a roller ball, and was launched in three exceptional colour patterns: green-hued Malachite with the look of a semi-precious stone, Shiny Lines with glistening grey-hued stripes and the metallic look of the black-and-white Zebra.
For the coming season, Montegrappa has added two stunning new colours, Lapis and Butterfly Blue.
These intriguing choices feature combinations of shades, with Lapis mixing golds, browns greys and blues in an organic swirl, while Butterfly Blue exploits its eponymous colour with a plethora of hues. As before, all Extra Otto fountain pens are fitted with 18k gold nibs, and can be ordered with one of eight nib widths, from ‘extra fine’ to ‘stub’. The trim on all Extra Otto writing instruments is made from pure silver, and octagonal motif is express in the ring at the end of ever Extra Otto pen. Extra Otto’s clip, fitted with the company’s roller, also boasts its own secret: a red lacquer backing.
