Mecca is the town where Muhammad was born.
The Mecca Rollerball Pen is turned from a black shiny resin bar in a form which immediately recalls the architecture of the Kaaba.
For ergonomic reasons the corners of this bar have been rounded, in order to make the Mecca pen become a daily writing instrument.
The four shaft sides and the three ones of the cap are “decorated” with Qu’ran verses in Arabic. Thanks to their elegant graphic features they give to the pen an extremely elegant aspect.
These writings are inspired to the Kiswa, the precious black cloth that cover the Kaaba with its golden writings. When the cloth is lifted up we can see the original structure of the Kaaba, made of bricks and this is exactly the same for the pen rings.
At the end we have a clip with a balancing device, a common feature to many Visconti pens of the past inspired to the silver set Kaaba Black Stone recalling the human eye.
