Reuse Philosophy

Perpetua and TECNO EDM

Reuse Philosophy
Based on an idea by ALISEA and TECNO EDM

Perpetua, the pencil that wasn’t there before.

Tecno E.D.M. Srl is also the company that has inspired an invention that speaks of the environment, new technologies, innovation and the future. how? Contributing to re-inventing the production process of pencil production.

And since we are convinced that nothing happens by accident ….

Here is a day of MAY 2011 by Cristina Poli of Tecno E.D.M. meets by chance Susanna Martucci of Alisea Recycled & Reused Objects Design.

Susanna claimed that with the company’s production waste she would be able to produce beautiful design items that would then become a wonderful business communication object.

Cristina is fascinated by this approach in the production of objects and talks to Vittorio and, together, a few months later they decide to contact Susanna to understand what could have been done with the tons of graphite powder, the inevitable waste of Tecno E.D.M. of the electrodes.

“Do we try to make pencils?” They think.

After more than a year and a half of study, design and testing, in JUNE 2013, at the “PARIS AIR SHOW” fair in Paris, to which Tecno E.D.M. participates as an exhibitor, comes for the first time presented to the Perpetua world the pencil, the only one produced in Italy, the only one ever made with the graphite powder recovered from industrial production processes, those of Tecno E.D.M..

A pencil that becomes a patent of product and production process and reinventing the way to produce them.

Perpetua wins the award as the best eco-friendly invention at the 2013 SETTEGREEN AWARDS of the Corriere della Sera.

It is HONOR MENTION at the ENVIRONMENT 2014 under the patronage of the Italian Environment Ministry.

It is nominated for the New York final at the International BEST OF THE YEAR 2015 prize

In 2015 it is a guest of honor at Italian SEMESTER Italian Presidency at the European Parliament in BRUSSELS: Perpetua was the gift of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Italian Environment to all ministers of the European Parliament.

In 2016 it was honored with the COMPASS OF GOLDEN HOMOR, the most prestigious international design award thanks to the architect Marta Giardini who designed it.

Today Perpetua, Alisea and Tecno E.D.M. are already present in several countries in Europe, but since 2017 in the USA, Canada, Australia, Japan.

To date, thanks to Cristina and Vittorio’s intuition, about 8 tonnes of graphite powder have been consumed, which would otherwise destined to be hidden under the ground.

Each of us, using Perpetua, consumes and recycles by writing with 15 grams of inevitable dust producted from TECNOEDM’s graphite electrodes.
