The development of the project started from the customer’s wishes.
We therefore drew inspiration from the founding elements of the company: Italian style, technology and innovation, and from the materials belonging to the past and present of the company such as wood and carbon fiber.
Thus the Fincantieri letter opener, which reproduces the fluid-dynamic shapes of an Andrea Doria class destroyer, took shape:
- One side of the letter opener silhouette is made of carbon fiber
- The other side, on the other hand, is made of wood, the first natural material used by man in his constructions and by Fincantieri for its first prestigious ship, the Partenope
- In a subsequent phase, carbon (3 mm sheet) and wood (1 mm sheet) are first laminated and then milled with a numerical control machine
- A hand-stitched leather case contains and presents the item
