"TULIP FOR TEAM FOX" ~ MONTEGRAPPA
After I received my Parkinson's Disease diagnosis, I discussed with MONTEGRAPPA C.E.O. Giuseppe Aquila the possibility of creating a Montegrappa pen for global release, with part proceeds of all sales donated to a Parkinson's Disease Research Charity / Foundation.
Giuseppe was very enthusiastic about the idea and very supportive of my involvement as designer, encouraging me even though he knew I had doubts that my capabilities were somewhat limited due to tremors and bouts of depression because of my condition.
While we were confident of producing a beautiful pen, we were unsure of where the money raised from sales would be directed.
After much research and due diligence, the Michael.J.Fox Foundation (MJFF) & TEAMFOX were selected as our preferred partners.
MJFF is described by Bloomberg as
“the fulcrum on which Parkinson’s research pivots”.
It is with great pride that I can now reveal the fruits of our efforts with the Montegrappa "TULIP FOR TEAM FOX" a selection of strikingly beautiful pens inspired by TEAMFOX colours, with the distinctive sculptural Tulip shaped clip designed by me.
The Tulip is the international symbol for Parkinson's Disease.
Available in 3 variations, of fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint, designed stand out and to exclaim loud and proud , support for medical research into Parkinson's Disease.
