Designer Sergio Carpani on the Iconic Parafernalia Revolution

"I started to work with what was HI-TECH at the time, that was to show the technical parts, the mechanism, the guts of the instrument (just like the Centre Pompidou – Beaubourg of that time) and design the shape of the fitting around it. An innovative pen(cil), entirely hand-made with 31 miniaturized metallic components and push mechanism just like the most complex race cars. For this reason, the pen was called REVOLUTION and with great astonishment to everyone, it revealed to be a great commercial success which, even today characterizes the PARAFERNALIA brand. Revolution proposes itself today as a unique and contemporary writing object."
