Among the pavilions featuring the installation of different sunscreen systems by the company based in Agrate Brianza, the New Holland pavilion stands out, as the only agricultural brand participating in Expo 2015, setting out to represent all farmers who with the help of the latest technologies and the most innovative machines are able to feed the world.
The technology and innovation of the pavilion match the sunscreens installed by Resstende, a fine example of Italian ingenuity and expertise.
The inspiration behind the design of the New Holland pavilion comes from the Energy Independent Farm program, based on the idea that with the right technologies for the production of bioenergy it is possible for farmers to be independent of fossil fuels.
Recchi Engineering, the Italian leader in the field of Project and Construction Management and design, at the head of a multidisciplinary project team composed of the studio Carlo Ratti Associati (concept), Nüssli Italia, Manens-Tifs, Studio Durbano, was designated as the creative agency for the pavilion following a highly competitive European tender. The project interpreted the commitment of New Holland to sustainable and efficient agriculture.
Thanks to a particular structure and various interactive tools, video installations, augmented reality systems and displays of tractors and harvesting machines, visitors can learn about how New Holland promotes sustainable agriculture. The pavilion has been designed to be dismantled, reassembled and adapted to a new function after Expo, for 100% sustainability.
In this futuristic project Resstende has worked on the internal screening of the pavilion, installing 28 chained systems with the Easy Lock transmission controls, also equipped with a Child Safety Device.
All the blinds are made in compliance with Uni standards on safety and security that must be respected for correct risk management for children, bearing witness to the company’s commitment to guarantee the highest product quality and focus on all the initiatives that can reinforce the professionalism of those operating in this sector. In every project, Resstende pays maximum attention to safety along with quality.
The fabric selected by the client is M-Screen 8505, a composite of 36% glass fiber and 64% PVC. With an opening coefficient of 5%, the fabric has excellent color performance. The blue-black tone – cod. 33003 – joins the colors that represent New Holland, found throughout the pavilion. M-Screen is in Italian Class 1 for flameproofing, with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 class IV certification and Greenguard, guaranteeing that no dangerous chemical substances are found in the fabric, for total safety in indoor applications.
