Visconti Limited Edition Homo Sapiens Iris Garden Fountain Pen

Visconti is proud to announce the launch of the new Homo Sapiens Iris Garden inspired by the Iris Garden in Florence, Italy.

This pen is a tribute to the delicate beauty and ephemeral elegance of the irises that bloom between the end of April and the end May in the historic Giardino dell’Iris (Iris Garden) in Florence, which is located near the Piazzale Michelangelo and offers a stunning view of the city.

The history of the so-called “lily of Florence” is controversial. It seems that it originated from a white Iris, the Iris Florentina, which grew abundantly in the Arno Valley during the Florentine Republic and which the people called “ghiacciolo” or icicle, for its white, slightly bluish color.

The iris is not only a symbol of Florence, but also of its rich history and culture. 

The lily was adopted as the emblem of the city in the 11th century, when it was used to decorate the banners and shields of the Florentine soldiers. The lily also represents wisdom, courage and faith, qualities that have characterized Florence throughout the centuries.

Like previous limited collections in the Homo Sapiens series, Iris Garden is made from special, semi-transparent demo resins carefully selected by Visconti's designers. The highlight of the collection, however, is the rose gold trims that perfectly match the coloring of the resin and add a touch of light and exquisite detail to the design.

The double reservoir power filler is a vacuum filling system that is easy to use and has considerable benefits. Patented in 1998, this is arguably the most advanced filling system ever developed in fountain pen history. The user is able to fill the pen with the equivalent of 10 cartridges of ink, and thanks to the two reservoirs, prevents ink from leaking during air travel, and then completed with an in-house made rose gold plated 18k gold nib.

The Hook Safe Lock cap closing system was created to lock the pen body into the cap to prevent the possibility of the pen accidentally unscrewing and leaking.

The Iris Garden Limited Edition is individually numbered and limited to 388 pens worldwide.
