Perpetua recorder is an integrated writing system. Simple and innovative, it is made in Italy from the symbiosis of 2 different technologies applied to circular economy materials: steel and graphite.
Thanks to recorder we choose to write and share, where, when and with whom we want, our stories, our dreams and our future. In this way we are always free to connect with our thoughts and our creativity without the need for wi-fi or electricity. We want to create and develop innovative technologies to rediscover the skill of our hands, our mind and our ideas. It doesn’t matter who we are or where we come from. We can always make the difference.
Technology and materials
Graphite and steel rewrite the laws of attraction. Perpetua recorder is a magnetic notebook that combines patents and innovative technologies, made in Italy. A unique writing tool where the cover – which uses a thin strip of steel AISI 430 (60% derived from the recovery and recyling of metal scraps) – attracts magnetically Perpetua the pencil. Magnetic Perpetua and its notebook are made entirely of industrial scraps, thus implementing the life cycle and giving birth to new combinations to reduce wastes and promote a new model of sustainable development.
The cover of Perpetua recorder is made of Jacron, a cellulose fiber material originally developed to replace leather in the production of labels in the fashion industry. It is washable, does not tear and it is 100% recyclable. It is printed with g_ink, the first and only pigment made with recycled graphite powder, the same of Perpetua the pencil, which offers a perfect alternative to the use of chemical dyes in silk screen printing of paper and fabrics.
The inner pages are made of recycled paper and printed in an Italian production plant powered by a latest generation photovoltaic system that contributes to a reduction in CO2 emissions of 760,000 kg / year. Dimensions: 15×21 cm, 128 sheets.
To express the concept of attraction and freedom, the designer Marta Giardini created the artwork of Perpetua recorder taking inspiration from Kubrick’s famous masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey”. As the protagonist of the film moves inside the orbiting stations even without gravity, so magnetic Perpetua freely moves on Recorder.
