A guided project from self-production to self-marketing online, the Personal Factory directly translates a design concept into a series of objects, each uniquely tailored to an individual. These objects are made through the rapid prototyping technique of stereolithography, starting from a liquid photopolymer that is selectively solidified using a computer-controlled ultraviolet laser. Feeding a seamless chain of mind-made transformations, from human phenotype to computer bits to self-mirrored objects.
Urna Infinita - Infinite urn
Project realized for Design Impossible, 2012
born in Konan
For Akiko Kozato small mortuary urns as souvenir of her life, with sentences and other particulars for each parent or friend. Of small compact size, 7x7x5 cm circa, each urn is custom-made in desired quantities and 'impossible' shapes.
Denis Santachiara creates design artifacts with an elevated technological component, featured in personal and collective exhibits among others at the Venice Biennale in 1980 and at the Grand Palais in Paris. Always interested in new technologies and the expressive potential they carry, he derives his original contributions from the design of product-ideas, transforming the material/architectonic composition into an interface between ideation and celebration of usage. Recipient of the Compasso d'oro in 1986, he receives in 1999 the Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and in April 2000 the Design World.
