ACME Studio Roller Ball Pen ROCHETTI Limited Edition Ettore Sottsass

The “Rochetti” Limited Edition roller ball pen was designed by Italian master designer/architect Ettore Sottsass. The design uses a white gloss lacquer background with black stripes which are applied so perfectly that the split between the cap and barrel is virtually invisible.

“ETTORE SOTTSASS FOR ACME” is laser engraved on the clip. The edition number is placed on the top of the cap. Only 500 pens of this design were made. No more will ever be produced.
