Balance mobile // CAPPELLINI 2014

For us, as for most people, each day is a research to find balance in life. The product is meant to remind us of that. Mobiles in the tradition of Alexander Calder hung from the ceiling, dividing through modern partitions the space into smaller intimate areas.

The Mobile is designed to create the layout exhibition during the Stockholm Furniture Fair in 2014 in relation to the Guest of Honor Nomination.

The project aims to industrialize these artistic sculptures, through the industrialization of modular components. The physical balance of the elements allows the composition with different number oftextile"petals", giving the possibility to create several configurations. The Balancesystem combine textiles and metal elements.

In addition to being sculptural and room dividers, the mobiles are also sound absorbers a feature which is invaluable in a space.
