Home > Winners > #83788


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Goccia

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Container

INSPIRATION:
A Buoy suspended in mid-air, a reference point such as the domestic hearth, a place of gathering, for thought, Goccia represents a contemporary vision of it.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
These container, whose shape ideally recalls that of a drop, can be used for various purposes, in fact the ceramic material in addition to make it suitable to contain food, it allows for both indoor and outdoor use. Equipped with warm white led light, these containers become diffusers of soft light, creating the right atmosphere for the surrounding environment. Goccia is available in 3 sizes, the largest of which can be completed by an oak top.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Organic shape for a hanging container looks like a suspended thought

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
New technologies, such as smartphones, tablets, etc., tend to physically isolate us based on a social network that travels. The reaction to this isolation is "Goccia" which encourages a rapprochement as happened in the past with the fireplace or the most recent TV.

CHALLENGE:
The first difficulty was found during the hand-working of the prototype, because it is not easy to work the clay on the lathe to reproduce precisely an organic shape, in 3 different scales. I had to consider also the weight and characteristics of the ceramic I wanted a system that was at the same time simple for maintenance and visibly minimal for suspension. For this purpose a truncated cone of wood was made, which fits into the neck of the container thanks to its own weight, to which the rope is engaged. The lamp holder, powered by a decorative electric cable, is attached to the same wooden element.
