"Zigrinato", meaning knurled in Italian, as the barrel of the pen in indeed knurled with an all brushed metal cap. It is a Limited Edition roller ball pen. "LELLA & MASSIMO VIGNELLI FOR ACME" is laser engraved on the clip. The edition number is placed on the top of the cap. Only 500 pens of this design were made. No more will ever be produced.
Great gift for design students and fans alike!
|What's the Story||Massimo Vignelli's subway diagram is a hallmark of modernist elegance, distilling New York's huge, complicated transit system into a sequence of straight lines, rainbow colors and black dots. New York City's offical subway map from 1972 to 1979, the diagram remains iconic in the design world. In 2011, it was repurposed for the digital age, serving as the basis for the MTA Weekender app and website. Not only responsible for the map, Vignelli also established the graphic standards still used today throughout the subway system.|
