The inventors of Re Voluxion
Inventors of Re Voluxion, the architects Sabrina Bignami and Alessandro Capellaro, answer to our questions...
1. When and how was the collaboration between B-Arch and Re+ set up?
1. A: The collaboration was born due to a personal acquaintance with Fabia and, given the type of activity practiced, it has been almost natural to think together about the product and be involved in thinking about how to give birth to a new chapter of this journey of Re+. It is always interesting to decontextualize an object and combine the two things.
2. What was the idea behind the birth of Re Voluxion and what did you want to convey designing it?
2. A: The basic idea is innate in the same identity of Re+. It's a second life of industrial production waste products. S: The idea was born from the most interesting waste product, characterized by a strong visual identity, and immediately after, form the recognition of a strong similarity between this product and the lamps made during the '60s, the golden age for design. The goal was to redesign a lamp that was in line with Re + and had a very contemporary design and perception. The intent was to transform something already existing into something workable, but creating a new product. A: It's interesting to think that the waste product can be a resource for design: objects reach perfection with the collaboration between designers and those who produce. This is an interesting thing to connect to the concept of Re +.
