The Komodo EcoWall partition, produced by Nardi, is used as the basic module for Regeneration, an installation designed by Raffaello Galiotto that was presented at the Università Statale during Milan Design Week 2019.
Designed by Galiotto, the immersive installation Regeneration is realized with modules of Komodo EcoWall, a regenerated partition produced by Nardi.
How to regenerate the plastic used in the context of environmental respect is an important topic for Nardi, a Vicenza-based company specialising in the production of outdoor resin furniture. The immersive installation Regeneration, designed by designer Raffaello Galiotto, will be the first experimentation produced by the company, which with the same regeneration technology will soon introduce the modular partition Komodo EcoWall to the market. The installation will be presented in Milan during Fuorisalone 2019, as part of the exhibition “Interni Human Spaces” (Università degli Studi di Milano, 8-19 April 2019).
Galiotto conceives an open-air space dedicated to regeneration: of the material composing it and of the soul of those visiting it. Composed of 688 Komodo EcoWall modules, the envelope has a dynamic and twisted shape, given by the overlapping and rotation of ten rings, measuring 7x7x7 meters.
“The result is a space permeable to light and air, a place where people can relax under a tree, lie down on a giant padded bed and self-produce energy through manually rotating devices for charging smartphones or other gadgets,” says the designer.
The Komodo EcoWall modular garden divider is made from end-of-life plastic outdoor furniture meeting specific quality requirements. The company introduces an innovative production method in three phases: withdrawal of used resin products from the customer; shredding of the waste material and homogenisation of the different colours; moulding of the modular dividers using air moulding technology. The process is designed to avoid any type of harmful emission into the atmosphere.
Floriana Nardi, CEO of Nardi, Marketing and Communication Manager: “Regeneration is a project that is very important to us and that we have been developing for a long time involving different company professionals and departments. If we think about the future, plastic cannot be easily replaced in different sectors. The real problem is its unconscious use, starting with the manufacturers. Regeneration wants to be a first responsible reaction to the issue of plastic reuse and, more generally, of environmental protection, for which we have long been committed on several fronts.”
