This is an always on-going project, see latest updates on Rilievo instagram.
The formal purity pursued by the studio brings out the material properties of the products. In addition to constant research on materials and production technologies, new methods of surface appearance are explored. In this context, the “Rilievo” experimentation research is aimed at finding three-dimensional textures of the surface that can be totally integrated with the products. The “skin” of the products is also what allows interaction with the user thanks to touch and sight, conveying sensations that help the objects to express themselves.
This research is developed creating samples to test touch and sight qualities enhanced by both the material and the production technology, for this reason the theme of technological possibilities and constrains runs parallel to the design.
