The innovative Revolution design was developed in 1978 by Sergio Carpani to commemorate the construction of the Beaubourg in Paris (otherwise known as the Pompidou Centre, with its famous exposed structural skeleton design). The Revolution has been exhibited in the New York Museum of Modern Art.
The Revolution ballpoint is hand-made in Italy from 31 separate pieces. At heart, this is a simple retractable pen design, but with the usual cylindrical barrel replaced by three parallel tubes. This is more comfortable to hold than it looks as it has a triangular profile, which is quite contemporary among ergonomic pen designs. The tubes are of aluminium, finished in various colours, with black plastic connecting pieces.
These days the Revolution incorporates a needlepoint ballpoint refill from the highly-respected OHTO of Japan, so it writes finely and smoothly. Refill supplied as black ink fine point only. Note that the Schmidt 700 refill also fits although the Schmidt 700 is silver and will be visible in the pen.
Revolution is supplied gift-boxed and makes a wonderful gift - for yourself or for someone else.
