Dieffebi launches the modular system Ottaedro, designed by SBGA, at Salone del Mobile .
It is a micro-architecture originated by the analysis of contemporary workspaces based on increasingly flexible organizational models. Ottaedro pays also a tribute to the splendid illustrations of geometric figures made by Leonardo da Vinci for the text De Divina Proportione wrote by Luca Pacioli.
“Movement, changing and growth are the key words that drove us in this project”, explain the architect and designer Giuseppe Blengini, “we started from here thinking to a minimal and very clean structure, but at the same time able to dialogue with the more comfortable spaces, even in the living area od an apartment, without clashes”.
The choice of the octahedron, two overlapping cone trunks that generate 8 symmetrical sides, comes from a study regarding statics and solidity, but it’s also a tribute to the wonderful illustrations of geometric figures, all united by the idea of perfection, realized by Leonardo da Vinci for the text De Divina Proportione of the mathematician Luca Pacioli. The text, wrote in 1496, is today among the treasures kept in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana of Milan.
Even the choice of colors finds a spontaneous reflection in the Da Vinci’s palette, with dusty and neutral colors, which contribute to creating a warm, welcoming environment, in the office and in every context.
Ottaedro, design SBGA Blengini Ghirardelli.
A modular micro-architecture system able to grow in length and width and to adapt to any space thanks to a joint with a unique shape, an octahedron, exactly, which combines the metal components in a fixed way, welcoming the infinite variations.
