Waiting for collective and cultural places will be opened and frequented, Metallvm_Design proposes Diago.N modular spacer system, designed by Total Tool (Giulio Ceppi with Ettore Giordano), where the metal rod becomes protagonist of harmonious “sculptures ” that lightly mark the space and identify paths in a fluid and non-invasive way.
For the foreseeable future the regulation of the people flow and social distancing will be key elements for a gradual return to normal life after the impositions due to the corona virus pandemic.
In a previous article WOW! has already dealt with the theme of the “barrier” and the need to divide spaces without generating anxiety.
Another article by the anthropologist Gabriele Masi had also suggested that barriers should not only be physical impediments to the passage of something, but occasions for creating new pathways, too.
Also of new creative pathways, as demonstrated by Total Tool which is able to “soften” the rigid iron bars -usually used for reinforced concrete structures- transform them in a harmonious and customizable barriers system easily adapted to any type of space: hotel lobbies, museums and galleries, churches, cinemas and theaters, office.
Diago.N modular system is composed of three single elements made of a single piece of ribbed steel rod produced by Kindof and coated with an antibacterial copper finishing.
The three elements have the same width (120 cm) and different heights, to facilitate sitting or containing objects, communication and graphics.
The rod finishing and the textile elements made of sailing nylon make Diago.N easy to wash and resistant to atmospheric agents.
The elements are stackable and space saver when stored.
