NATURE & TECHNOLOGY
BEAUTY, NATURE & TECHNOLOGY
Titled Speedforms in the Garden, the Pininfarina designed site spans different spaces united by an underlying theme, a progression from the natural to the engineered. The area which includes a sculpture garden, five benches, and a deck area with a bar, took center stage in the design of the outdoor space of the CASACOR exhibition.
Each element of the installation is a protagonist in the story. Cosentino, the Spain-based global leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, has provided the materials and expertise and played an integral role in bringing Pininfarina’s vision and design to life.
The Pininfarina design language is strongly driven by functional requirements and the aesthetical solutions are fluid, balanced and dynamic without need of useless decorations.
OUTDOOR LIVING INNOVATION
Fluid and dynamic works of art
Three sculptures, representing the natural in form and material, were crafted from Scalea® Marble Blanco Macael. They stand against the Miami urban background and evoke a sense of freedom, growth, and the simple beauty of that which has been fashioned by nature. Like a natural erosion, the sculptures emulate the precision and power with which nature crats elements into objects.
Blending this emotionality with functionality, the benches in the lounge area and the bar consist of aerodynamic shapes with a refined functional aesthetic. The benches are arranged in a staggered arrangement and are crafted from Dekton®.
Similarly, the bar features long lines that curve on the opposing ends, reminiscent of automotive design and Pininfarina’s longstanding history in the field. The bar’s design is ergonomic, functional, and harmonic.
Playing with nature and technology
In Speedforms in the Garden, Pininfarina plays with the opposing forces of nature and technology and blends features of craftsmanship and engineering to create objects that are both beautiful and functional for everyday use.
The sculptures, benches and the bar of ‘Speedforms in the Garden’ are available for sale.
