ETHERGRAF®, the modern heir of Silverpoint, is an innovative metal alloy which leaves a light and romantic mark like graphite, but timeless like ink.
The ETHERGRAF® tip microscopically “scratches” paper, oxidizing it and thus leaving a light but precise mark. Thanks to its porosity, common paper - that is to say paper in non-treated cellulose - perfectly reacts to the passage of the metal tip.
The presence of bonding agents, mineral fillers, dyes or additives in paper compromises its natural absorption capacity, thus making oxidation partially impossible at the contact with the ETHERGRAF® tip.
That’s why our styluses never aimed at replacing common writing tools, but go beyond the concept of pure function, transforming themselves into the perfect design accessory for those who always like having a story to tell.
A natural instinct, an ancient gesture, as simple as it is evocative. Tools to give shape to thoughts traced the course of time, experiences of past centuries wrote the history of future inventions.
The ETHERGRAF® tip takes inspiration from the special technique of the silver tip, used by Leonardo da Vinci. Created thanks to the cooperation with leading Italian researchers, it takes advantage of the oxidation caused by the friction between paper and metal tip, bringing it to a new level. Conceived, realized and hand-forged in Italy, ETHERGRAF® is the hallmark of our styluses.
“ETHERGRAF® is something that did not exist before, innovation at the service of imagination, it is matter that doesn’t fear time, zero stains, zero lead, 100% creativity.”
