Omas introduced the 360 model in 1996.
It was a very innovative model, designed by the Italian architect Stefano Bini. Its triangular shape was meant to enhance the correct position of fingers when writing.
The design of the pen is based on the so-called Releaux triangle, an equilateral triangle with three angles of 60 degrees each, hence the name of the model.
The early production was limited to black/bluish pens with a length of 16 cm, which are presently known as Magnum or oversize 360s.
Standard models were introduced later and a large variety of colors was added. Standard 360s have a length of 15 cms and can be found both with HT or gold filled finish.
This Omas 360 is part of the early production and it is long 16 cm. The resin is actually a deep dark blue.
