Montegrappa - Calligraphy With A Conscience

Last April marked the 50th celebration of Earth Day – a reminder of the resilience of an environmental movement that first took root in the 1960s. In a year where our relationship with nature has never been under greater scrutiny, the #elmoambiente is a considered, sustainable reinvention of one of our most accessible silhouettes.

The Elmo Ambiente's 100% recycled resin casing has been developed in collaboration with the artisanal materials studio, Smile Plastics. Two semi-translucent finishes offer an insight into the mechanics of writing, and a reflection on the larger narrative of all the things we touch. A suite of recycled desk accessories underlines its core message, while further exploring the beauty of materials that have already served another purpose.

ELMO 01 FANTASY BLOOMS - Flower Power

Dazzling floral textures lend new brilliance to the Bauhaus-era Elmo 01. One of the market's trendiest silhouettes steps out of the shadows to reveal a psychedelic side. Iris, Calla Lily and Blue Cross Gentian...vivid, flower-bed colours complement the style of vibrant spirits, creative souls and dapper dressers.

Balanced proportions, robust build and democratic pricing have quickly established the Elmo 01 as a clear alternative to the norm. Find out why fans are calling this masterstroke of Italian design the best new silhouette of recent years.
