    The Future Of Stationery

    Dear All, We're writing here this time to announce that we have launched a Design Competition entitled "The Future of Stationery' We have already published it in all the main design websites, Here a resume: The future of stationery. 2020 Venvstas Italy design competition. ​ What's on your desk and what will continue to be on it in the years to come? ​ ​​​ Although we are living in a time where the bulk of our information is produced by computers, there's still room for the analog. Most of what we draw is on paper, calligraphy is considered an art and greatest designs and artistic ideas start as a small sketch or a note of some kind on a piece of paper. Venvstas was founded in 2014 as a branch of a design office (Lucio Rossi design/U75). Today it has its own life and its producing some of the most interesting writing instruments and accessories one can find. We think that the tools we use have to be inspiring, have to be holders of a certain quality and a design that has to resist the test of time. Make now something for today but thinking about tomorrow. We believe in objects that are to be kept through the years, meaning that they will not be part of the current cycle of fast introduction and disposal. If something is well designed, well made and looks beautiful, it will be more likely to be kept. The current times are tough ones for each of us although they show as a test, an opportunity where hopefully designers will start to understand such values, as the ones that are the pillars of our brand, the Vitruvian triad, that can apply to anything that's designed or built, not only architecture. Firmitas. A building has to be strong. Vtilitas. A building has to serve to a purpose. Venvstas. A building has to have the qualities of Venus. It has to be beautiful. If any single object that's designed in our planet would follow these simple principles, (or at least one) the situation regarding waste and obsolescence would be a different one. If a product is made to last, recycling is not anymore the issue it is nowadays, as little of what's produced and labeled as recyclable ever gets recycled being at best up-cycled. Since we are still too far from a “cradle to cradle” model we should start focusing in producing less waste and we strongly believe that one way is by doing better objects and fostering endurance, both in built quality and design. Our contribution to the current crisis is to make you to think on this reality and the different opportunities it could bring. It's a time not to be still, it's a time for ideas and movement, it's the time to think on how we're going to live in the near future, it is not anymore just a matter of the planet we'll leave to future generations, but the planet we live in now. ​​ The task: ​Design a concept, an object or a product that is in line with the theme: The future of stationery. This refers to any product that fits the category «stationery», like writing equipment, notebooks, desk accessories or anything that you may feel belongs to a desk and can be suitable for home or office use or both. Products can be aimed at the general public, professionals or hobbyists alike. The entry is FREE, there's no fee. Submission is via the internet. More: https://www.venvstas.com/ Thank you!
  3. Dear Community: It's been a long time since the last post on the network but its our first time as Venvstas Italy. We are taking this moment to communicate (despite the difficulties we're all facing) that since mid 2019 Venvstas Paris has changed hands, we're a new company now and we are based and producing in Italy. Therefore its now Venvstas Italy. We will make a new account here on the network soon where we will be posting our news from the brand as we would like to communicate directly with the community. These days we are committed to re-design and re-build all communication channels and specially our you tube channel where you'll be able to see our new carbon collection. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUQ9lT1PZrDjbxRHyFbWhOQ We have put a lot of work and effort on the new collection, and so we did with the new videos (we'll be adding more). We have left some of the old ones (Venvstas Paris) for a short period of time so you can take a look on some of the old Parisian models, as we're currently working on developing them for large scale manufacturing. They are great designs, but so far we have started with the linear carbon ones, as they were the most challenging of all. Our webstore is still open, but we are shipping only via DHL EXPRESS at the moment, alternatively you may also find our products via some very well known retailers in the community. You can visit our website. https://www.venvstas.com/ or follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/venvstas/ Looking forward for your visit ! (comments are currently disabled, as we're still building up the channel.) Our best wishes and happy Eastern on these challenging times The new Venvstas team.
  4. Hi, I was lucky enough to find a 1930's Onoto Magna which has been restored to working condition. The downside is that the fitted De la Rue No. 7 nib is a fine one with no flex and I don't find it very satisfying to write with. I'd like to know if there are replacement No.7 nibs available or alternatives used with magnas of this era. Thanks

  7. Greetings Onotoistas! Don't want to start a big brewhaha.... But would like to hear comments from you Onotoists out there in FPN land regarding some of the virtues and cons of the vintage Magnas (lever and plunger fill) versus the new modern Magnas produced now. There's the obvious differences of having an old used pen vs a new one with warranty....so, besides those differences and assuming that the vintage Magna is in good condition (has been restored or repaired), I'm interested in the user experience of picking up a vintage one to write with vs a new one. Which one would you like to use and why? Does that make sense? Thanks for any and all comments... Mark Waiting impatiently for his Onoto Magna Tortoiseshell to arrive, so, making posts like this.....
  8. I was visiting Penbox in Epworth today and they had enquired about my order for the Magna Classic Tortoiseshell (LE of 100 - can be pre-ordered through Penbox and may be available from next week). They also had the following images of the pen:
