I WANT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT THAT

This is the way I have seen and see some aspects of this project, how I have seen and see the company, what I would say to those who founded all this, how I have intended this type of collaboration which boundaries dilate inside and outside their work, the importance I remark in their experimentations, and how I have perceived each artist’s work, both as in method and work of art. Press play, close your eyes, and enjoy your journey.

TECHNOLOGY: COMFORT IN SEATING WHY THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN SEATING ON TECHNOGEL?

When is pressed by the body Technogel® moulds itself to each individual’s shape by deforming along all three axes: “up-down”, “right-left” and “frontward-backward”. Normal padding materials tend, on the other hand, to deform only in the “up-down” direction, causing a considerable accumulation of pressure in the direct contact zones. Technogel®, therefore, offers and guarantees optimum comfort over time.

TALPA BE

Technogel’s experimentation and conceptual research is reflected in the collaboration with German artist Charlotte Mumm and realization of her Talpa be. The mole is made in lead – therefore extremely heavy compared to its small physical proportions – and it lies on a hill of Technogel®, which deforms under the mole’s weight.

SOFT FENCE

A barbwire fence covered in soft and attractive material. The artist places protection over something that is notoriously employed to defend those who use it and to hurt those who try and cross it. Severe and razor sharp blades become harmless thanks to the gel: the contrast between these two materials bearing conflicting characteristics and scopes is the starting point for Beutler’s research. The Technogel®, whose aim is to give happiness and comfort in everyday life, wraps up the wire, offering the possibility to touch it and handle it with no fear of injuries. The artist, who usually creates proper architectural structures, which visitors are called to enter and play their part in, in this case approaches the Technogel® designing a sculpture-installation, a circle of 3 meters of diameter, inviting the audience to gently change their path.
