The table that purifies the environment

Articolo di: Danilo Signorello
Data Pubblicazione: 31 December 2013

Featuring a cardboard filter that purifies the environment, the new version of the Tappo table by Lessmore takes advantage of the tunnels of corrugated cardboard whose structure makes it possible to channel air to be filtered by means of a fan. The treatment of the tunnels involves the use of chitosan (derived from crab shells), which blocks bacteria and prevents its spread, and titanium oxide lit by LEDs to function as a catalyst, oxidizing air pollutants. Created thanks to the collaboration between Giorgio Caporaso, designer of the Ecodesign Collection of Lessmore, and Alberto Cigada, professor of materials for design and innovation in materials and technologies at the Milan Polytechnic, Tappo thus becomes the ideal item for the home and for contract, for smoking rooms and retail facilities, in the version with environmental scent emission.

Seaside T08 Hydroline, the oasis of relaxation designed by Giovanna Talocci, and the Milestone washstand in Duralight by Carlo Colombo have brought Teuco two iF Design Awards for 2014.

Low-consumption LEDs

Articolo di: Danilo Signorello
Data Pubblicazione: 31 December 2013

Designed by UNStudio of Amsterdam in collaboration with ASPLan of Kaiserslautern, the new Center for Virtual Engineering (ZVE) of the Fraunhofer Institute of Industrial Engineering of Stuttgart features curved lines on the outside, alternating with ribbon windows in a sawtooth pattern, as in an organically formed sculptural structure. The dynamic use of lines continues on the inside: rounded elements meet linear features, large volumes overlap with zones flooded with light. The philosophy of sustainability plays a vital role: the building has received Gold certification from DGNB, the German Council for Sustainable Building. The lighting of the building is done by the low-consumption LED fixtures of the Nimbus Group: Modul Q and R range, Office Air LED floor lamps, and the Modul L 196 suspension lamp. The latter, developed for the ZVE, is a modern alternative to the classic fluorescents, used for the lighting of large work zones. Suspended from slender steel cables, Modul L 196 adapts to the environment, enhancing the surrounding architecture. Info: www.nimbus-group.com
