“Distensione” is history, tradition, engineering, style, innovation, ecology in the materials, in the form, in the function, in the measures: produced by Thalia in a limited number of 1093 totally customizable pieces, one of the each “ligne” length of its supporting structure.
The mechanism contained in the case of wristwatches, such as for the watchmaking industry, this eighteenth-centuryunit of measurement has always defined the dimensions of the “movement” , the mechanisms contained in the case of wristwatches, the most precious components that identify and distinguish these refined artifacts; in the same way “distensione” characterizes the width of the arch of the supporting structure: 1093 ligne.
A manufacturing movement is conceived, designed, developed, assembled and used exclusively by the brand that uses it, secretly and jealously preserving construction methods and technologies, in order to guarantee that no one can faithfully replicate the components or produce them in mass.
Thalia also imposes strict security measures and very strict confidentiality restrictions on the artisan workshops and to the entire production chain for “Distensione” to preserve and protect their designing know-how and innovaliving assembly techniques over time.
Like every precious objects, “Distensione protects himself, perpetuating their integrity and originality.
There are two elements from which it takes inspiration: a leaf and a curve. The arched shape rises upwards and taper more and more. The V articulated structure and the holes on both sides lighten it, enhancing its profile and design. At the tip it takes on a light and clear peralume.
Conceived and designed to relax in space without invading it, accompanying and illuminating the surrounding furnishings. From the initial inspiration, the project is transformed into geometric perceptions, abstract designs and shapes of great adaptability in modern environments. Lounges, entrances, offices, studies and bedrooms; in each of these situations it is essential to have the right light, both for a practical matter linked to eyestrain, and for an aesthetic matter.
ELABORATION, STABILITY AND LIGHTNESS
The solid wood support base gives the lamp a solid base and the right balance able to withstanding external forces and stresses.
Product development through technologies and software that allow its 3D visualization, its documentation and its technical analysis. In this way, the artificial image processed on the computer simulates the product in a real space.
Through a correct structural sizing, the weight is equally distributed from the tip to the base, and the shape is refined and thinned.
