DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Contesi

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Coaster

INSPIRATION:
We were inspired by the desire to create an object that would be able to give voice to dignity, modesty and generosity - the underlying characteristics by which we seek to draw inspiration into the fruits of our labors. We aimed to create a design that would be able to recount its own story, defy and engage us intellectually. We’ve entrusted this extremely important mission to a small, inconspicuous subject and have even given to him our name - Contesi - which in Italian denotes a state of contest, struggle

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A crucial step in tasting is swirling of the wine to release the bouquet: a gentle circular movement of the glass on board the coaster generates not only an anti-stress effect, but also a wave propagating, enhancing oxygenation. If guest, while picking up a glass, oftentimes clings to the cutouts of the coaster with glass base it could indicates that level of his concentration is rather low ,here we get some kind of alcotester. Furthermore, Inborn properties permit the coaster to remain stable in wave conditions. This characteristic makes it easy to introduce the item into means of water transport.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Cutouts located on the upper plane of the coaster allow increasing of the critical angle of fall, in case of any direction inclines. The glass base clings to cutouts thus, to ensure the stability of glass, the weight of the coaster and geometric shoulder, are held in action. Four cutouts from the below of the coaster ensure a perfect water release, in the case of entering waves or an unpredictable rain. Moreover, thanks to the shape of the coaster legs, that is easy to manage and fix safely with other members of the infinity-kidobani chain, floor coasters - Magnificent seven included. Certainly the item can be used as an usual coaster for : glass, wine or liquor bottle, tea or coffee saucer and as a cap for takeaway ashtray.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
We had no restrictions on time, nor on style. We worked on these objects in our spare time between orders, and had the luxury of thinking about them when we wanted, how much we wanted and how we wanted. This is one of the causes of a long-term duration of the project

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The items is made of precious wood, and assembled manually. In order to optimize visual harmony, make up details are selected, grouped and build according to the natural drawing.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width132mm x Depth132 mm x Height 22mm

TAGS:
coaster, contesi, expressivity, multifunctional, entertaining, intriguing, wine tasting, swirling , anti-stess

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research background was as unusual as is the object itself. We had no restrictions on time, nor on style. In early versions, the coaster had no cutouts; we made them because of the large base of some glasses. However, other particular characteristics, both functional and intellectual, were uncovered one by one during the process of interaction with the coaster. This is a clear example that the most interesting ideas we always got from the objects themselves, probably because we were leaving them to mature.

CHALLENGE:
We aimed to create a design that would be able to engage us emotionally and intellectually. Perhaps the presence of three groups of proportionality decreasing cutouts, four in each, leads one to some philosophical reflections
