Phosphorus Imperfect and ho1 are part of a new project were design meets multimedia.
Shackleton thermosculpture has been chosen as part of the installation and performance project Forrás at the EXPO Hungarian Pavillion from September 21st untill October 31st. Shackleton is the symbolic presence of the Forrás project, representing the heavenly world, the highest step in the shamanic journey and the vital energy of water, both inspiring themes for the architecture of the pavillion. Shackleton is named as the crater located at the south pole of the moon, and it faithfully reproduces lunar morphology using 3D satellite surveys carried out on the planet's terrain, simultaneously becoming in its final form a seat and an atlas with which one can retrace every single sea or crater. As for the thermoscupture benches and radiators we design and produce, also this limited edition sculpture is made of aluminium and produced with our patented t-sculpt technology. In the case of Shackleton the cooled down surface reacting with the atmosphere produces the surprising effect to be covered by a thin veil of dew.
Since the beginning our vision was to establish a meeting point among different disciplines. We set up a project studio involving designers, artists, engineers and scientists to use in a new and original way in house industrial and artisan labs and facilities. We naturally live an original and useful double identity: the project studio and the manufacturing company, perfectly integrating different skills, labs and tools. The integration of multidisciplinary knowledge, refined by years of experience, with advanced technology and artisan skills, and the care for people and environment modelled a welcoming place for both creative and technological disciplines. We design and produce through our patented process, original objects that can warm or cool, mixing formal originality and functional innovation to redefine the image and experience of the places where they are installed.
