Arco Desert Beetle is a limited edition of 888 numbered pieces inspired by the stunning iridescence of celluloid.
The Arco material is made by overlapping alternating layers of resin in green and silver colors and joining them together with ultra-high performance adhesives. The slabs of the material are then turned with an eccentricity of 4 degrees, revealing the overlapping layers and bringing to light the natural iridescence and transparency.
The unique design of the Arco pen is a stratification of layers of materials, creating a design with colors that were popular in the ‘30s. After intensive research, Pineider has been able to replicate these famed hues with several layers of resin, creating a visual effect that mimics celluloid—a once popular material in pen manufacturing. This new resin is more durable and does not face the crystallization issues of celluloid, making the Arco an amazing upgrade.
