Home > Winners > #38948


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
WHALE SKELETON

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Staircase

INSPIRATION:
This project started with the desire to use the forms found in nature and apply them to our needs, capabilities, with imagination and innovative technology. It takes the idea from the observation of skeletons paleontologists and in particular of blue whales. These great ribs along with the vertebrae, they made me immediately think of a possibility almost natural transformation in a scale that can be a fixed pattern or articulated as the vertebrae in reality.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The whale skeleton staircase demonstrates the ability of the design to draw on natural forms, biological in nature. This staircase stands out the uniqueness of the form derived from the ribs and vertebrae stylized, transformed and domesticated if necessary, to revive in a suitable environment, all the power and the effect that it can create a sculpture of this kind.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The project wants to expose the evolution of biological design for the service which can give to the community, for a new visual and tactile communication. This staircase is primarily designed for museums of paleontology or any location where to create a magnet for attraction.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in December 2014 to February 2015 all in Forlimpopoli

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The material to be used is steel about to the supporting structure, holders of steps, handrails and the souls of the ribs, the wood or stone for the treads, wood or polyurethane foam or plastic materials such as ABS for the ribs, wood or plastic materials such as ABS for handrails and resin mixed with pumice powder or a powder of similar thickness for the finishing of the stair. For the workings can be used laser cutting and welding to the supporting structure and the technology for CNC milling steps, handrails, ribs.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This concept was created with the desire to use the forms found in nature and apply them to our needs, functionality, with imagination and innovative technology. This project takes the idea from the observation of dinosaur skeletons, large extinct animals or especially of blue whales. These great ribs along with the vertebrae, they did think about the possibility almost natural transformation in a staircase to fixed pattern or articulated, as the vertebrae are in reality.

CHALLENGE:
Try to turn a natural form, animal, biological, though seemingly simple, in a product designed for the human, is always a challenging process. But if the result is satisfactory, the human will be closer to the environment. We have to learn a lot from nature and now with new technology we can succeed in building from the infinitesimal small to enormously large.
