Focchi Group at Fuorisalone in Milan

Milan Design Week, Interni “House In Motion“ exhibition. Open 10am-10pm daily, 16-28 April 2018
Università degli Studi di Milano – Ca’ Granda ex Ospedale Maggiore, Milan

BALDACCHINO

Stanton Williams’ pavilion interprets the Interni exhibition theme House in Motion by giving physical form to the idea of movement through space. Space and movement combine to form a work of choreographic architecture. A spiral pathway is spatially compressed and released as it winds into the centre of the pavilion. Here, at the focal point, the ‘baldacchino’ – a canopy of light – hovers over a horizontal plane that suggests rest and contemplation. The pavilion floats above the ground surface to reinforce its abstract and poetic nature. Interlocking forms define the captured spaces. Blackened steel is used throughout to reinforce the pavilion’s sculptural qualities.

The engineering, manufacturing and installation of the pavilion is by Focchi Group with lighting provided by iGuzzini.

Dance Performance: Study of Body in Space
In a dance and music work inspired by the dynamic ebb and flow of the Pavilion, a solitary dancer challenges his body’s relationship with space and forges new connections and pathways with the architecture around him in a reactive and ever-shifting state.

Performance dates: 16 & 17 April 2018 – times: 6, 7 & 8pm
Duration: 10 minutes
Choreography: Thea Stanton
Dancer: Joe Garbett
Music: Cameron Graham

Re+Build 2017: Renewing the supply chain from site to factory with off-site construction systems

rebuild2
Re+Build is the only platform on the Italian scene for learning new ways of developing businesses in the real estate sector.The key is re-qualifying and exploiting the potentials of manufacturing constructions and of industry 4.0 in a sustainable manner. Professionals and companies in the sector will meet for the fishblow arena, plenary and parallel sessions aimed at disseminating highly specialised educational contents and making confrontations with regards to the values that influence innovation in the field of construction.
Two appointments on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd June at Riva del Garda and Milan so as to present Off-site Construction, a new way to mean the process of production in which the sites of the factory and the yard are looked at as one single “hybrid” environment. In off-site building, some constructive processes that characterise the industrial stage of product processing, first exclusive of the yard are undertaken in the same factories. New technologies for instance robotic automation, a culture of reuse – together with opportunities and concessions for professionals and developers – represent a solution for years of long awaited change for Italian construction.
The terms introduced by Off-site Construction will be addressed on Thursday 22nd June, in the plenary opening where among the prominent figures in the sector, Maurizio Focchi, the owner of Focchi S.p.a and Jacopo Palermo, the general manager of Percassi Immobiliare S.p.a will intervene. Trends that significantly influence the change of course of both the Italian and European industry.

Dollar Bay, London – Last unit installation

We are proud to have been part of this stunning project!

“It is with great pleasure that we can say Dollar Bay has topped out. The first piece of glass was installed in September 2015 (image one) and now, 13 months later, Focchi Spa have completed the installation (image two). All the jigsaw pieces have fallen perfectly into place ahead of completions in the coming weeks and is testament to the hard work and dedication of the Dollar Bay team.”   Mount Anvil
