Interior design and furniture designed with a transformative and collaborative approach, reusing materials from the district area
Over the past decade, entire industrial areas have been subjected to a rapid and profound transformation. They changed function, purpose, typologies, people flows and products, but they kept almost unchanged their architectural structure. This transformation created a gray area, composed of large and complex structures, special machines and obsolete equipment, currently not in use. Machineries designed for a long-lasting production cycles and special processes, with high wear resistance. This and other characteristics make them very close in term of quality and resistance to noble metals such as titanium, bronze, gold.
The project conceived for Fablab CfV, arises from this premise and from its particular position at the centre of a middle size industrial area. In collaboration with fablab community we obtained, from different companies in the area, big machines components, protective devices, staircases, floors, carriages, etc. From these materials we started the re-invention and transformation phase giving them a new function. We built a flyover infrastructure for the workshop, a protection for the machine areas which also became a stair for the upper levels, following the vertical development of the space.
