S.T. Dupont has worked with jewelry designer Philippe Tournaire to produce a series of writing instruments based on the world’s greatest structures.
Called “Architectural Masterpieces,” the series is inspired by three iconic monuments of the contemporary world—Paris’ Les Invalides, Russia’s St. Basil’s Cathedral, and China’s Pagoda of the Sun.
The roofing of the structures is made of solid 18 karat gold while the pens’ cylinders are manually plated and polished in bronze.
The main writing instrument is based on S.T. Dupont’s Olympia fountain pen, which can adapt to various ink colors, cartridges, and nib sizes.
Only 15 sets were made for each of the design, and unfortunately all 45 of them are already spoken for.
