CARE AND MAINTENANCE
• Water resistant.
• Very intensive wash as well as long exposure to direct sunlight may cause the colour to fade.
• Do not scratch varnish.
• Do not force when opening as all parts, hinges included are 3D printed in Nylon. Nylon is strong but not unbreakable.
What underlies the project is a botanical survey, and more specifically a study of the cypress fruit: the small spherical pinecones are characterised by a hidden soul, on which raised scales seem to float, as plates of a wooden armour separated by thin gaps. This spurred the idea of using round shapes, almost suspended over an inner volume, that reminds of the structure of a pinecone.
