NAPKIN® prepares to leave for a very special mission: Forever Pininfarina Space, our latest, brand new and innovative “stilo”, created in collaboration with the italian design house, now gets ready to go to space.
Our world has no boundaries: the will to explore and broaden our horizons has lead us to live a new adventure
Thanks to ALTEC(Aerospace Logistics Technology Engineering Company), we are about to go to space together with Pininfarina. Our new creation, the innovative stilo Forever Pininfarina Space, has been donated to the ISS (International Space Station) crew, who are bringing it with them to test it and use it under very unusual and extreme conditions, as it is for example the absence of gravity
Departure is scheduled for July 29th, on board of the Russian space shuttle Soyuz, which will stay in orbit until the end of the year.
Having always considered innovation and research as our strenghts, it seemed natural to get in touch with ALTEC, an italian exellence for what concerns the supply of engeneering services and logistics to support all the ISS operations, together with the realisation and development of missions aimed at exploring outer space
This new challenge embodies an important step in the evolution of our collaboration with Pininfarina, born in 2014 with Forever Pininfarina Cambiano, a “stilo” that has gained huge market and critics appreciation and rewards, has won an award nominee from the premium international magazine Le Stylographe and from the Italian Compasso d’Oro in 2016. Later on, in 2017, Forever Pininfarina AERO won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for Best Product Design.
Forever Pininfarina Space, thanks to its writing point made of Ethergraf® which leaves a mark that is both soft as graphite and indelible as ink, adapts perfectly to the extremely delicate conditions within the space stations (where for example the small and invisble graphite rubble is very dangerous for the filtering system).
When the mission is over, Pininfarina Space will leave again, to finally reach the stores
During these days, in the NAPKIN and Pininfarina social medias the space mission will be narrated through exclusive episodes by the voice of astronomers and space experts: are you ready to leave with us?
