Design approach: the perfectibility of the work.
Today’s dichotomy between countless languages and no language reveals the need to recover and reinterpret the excellence of Italian design tradition.
The experiment was to reinterpret today some hallmarks of the work of Gio Ponti, Pietro Chiesa and Max Ingrand for Fontana Arte, using the most advanced technologies currently available, as well as rethink the compositional approach in a process of “perfectibility of the work ” that tends to exalt the idea. In the construction, wanting to give new impetus to the high quality Italian craftsmanship, individual materials are rethought, enhancing their quality through manufacturing techniques: from traditional system of neon lighting, to high efficiency LED; from welded brass structure to aluminium foil cut with CNC machines; from the original assembly with fixing pins to bonding systems, made possible thanks to the new processing of glass that, likewise, has made it possible to rethink the size of the same.
