A true measure of good design is how well it stands the test of time. 38 years after its introduction, the Revolution ballpoint pen by Parafernalia looks as modern today as it did in 1978 when the Bee Gees ruled the pop charts. Originally developed by Sergio Carpani to commemorate the construction of the Pompidou Center with its acclaimed exposed structural skeleton design, the Revolution ballpoint looked like nothing that came before, or anything since. The Revolution is handmade in Italy from 31 individual pieces, resulting in an ergonomic form that is lightweight and extremely comfortable to use. The anodized aluminum tubes, matte black trim, solid mechanism and smooth writing combine to mark Revolution as a true quality writing instrument that will draw looks for years to come.
