Elle Effe Elle

 

An “exchange” open-air bookcase with a particular shape, the one of a spaceship, designed for children with the aim of encouraging the habit of reading.

Elle Effe Elle is the LFL project: “Little Free Library, take a book, leave a book!” which aims to encourage children to read more often and more willingly. A project that stems from a need, the one of  Villa di Serio’s Preschool, which involved Traiettorie Instabili, a very active cultural association within the community and Officina Idee studio for the design part. The aim was to make the object attractive to the target, for this reason the two architects Giovanni and Paolo dedicated themselves mainly to selecting that element of childhood fantasy that could be closest to them and they established that a small spaceship could be the winning solution. And so Elle Effe Elle was born, it is consisting of a central cylindrical part that contains the shaped shelf on which the books are placed and in support of the telescopic steel legs. The circular shape minimizes the presence of edges and being forced to slip under the shell to grasp its contents, increases the curiosity of the little ones. The spaceship is equipped with a transparent cover which, in addition to bringing natural light inside the passenger compartment, makes those who enter and look up towards the sky feel just as if they were in a real spaceship. Elle Effe Elle is also a rhyming book for children, conceived and created by Alice Tebaldi, which tells the story of two nice aliens, Bi and Ci and at the same time explains in a simple and fun way what is the purpose of the spaceship and how to use it. Modulor took care of the realization of all that was the wooden and metal furniture part of the steel telescopic legs.

Space Branch / Rami Spaziali

 

Rami spaziali che ricordano i videogiochi anni ’80 con le loro geometrie squadrate. Space Branch sono mensole modulari componibili.

Progetto: Alice Tebaldi
Anno: 2014

The shelves of the house are an indispensable element for the support of books, objects and ornaments. They are usually simple, linear and adapt to the style of the environment with discretion, without attracting too much attention. If instead they were an element that lives its own life, with a defined characteristic and a repeatable geometric pattern based on the available spaces, wouldn’t they be intriguing? From this idea, the Space Branch project, the name for their shape reminiscent of a bare branch carried inside a 90s video game. Elements characterized by a module with different lengths and inclinations, composable with other modules positioned in the same direction, staggered or rotated 180°. The shorter shelves can be used as “pocket trays” for keys, remote controls, small objects, while the longer ones for books, DVDs or knick-knacks. The more space available, the more combinations can vary creatively. These Space Branches are made of MDF lacquered with orange polyurethane paint, but the coloring can be customized. They are then fixed to the wall with invisible shelves.

Pouf containers for children’s games made with recycled paint cans and a soft padding on the closure.

Can the seats also be functional for the optimization and organization of the spaces in a house? Yes, of course. They can become a containment element if the space under the seat is closed and its interior is used. Hence the concept of Salt and Pepper: two poufs that, as well as functional, are interesting for the reuse of their materials, which have received a new life. The bases of the seats are in fact two cans of sterilized paint then externally powder coated in black and white. The handles of the cans are also mantained, for a more convenient transport of the elements inside the house. The seat instead, soft and comfortable, is made of a multilayer padded with eco-leather and worked with capitonnée buttons. In this case, elements that can be intended for a target of any age have been specifically customized for children and for be used in their bedroom or in the living area. For this reason, a graphic design has been given to the cans: two funny faces, one with curly hair and one with straight ones and two words “salt” and “pepper” that can be combined with their chromatic characteristics, have been designed, laser cut on adhesive and then applied over the entire width. Also combinable in the dining area with the nice Omelette table, they can be the right “condiment”.

Omelette Table

 

Omelette is a nice peninsula table, born from the need to have an asymmetrical support, with a wider and more comfortable part and a narrower one to be placed against a wall.

Project: Alice Tebaldi
Year: 2014

Choosing a table nowadays is difficult: lot of decisions guided by the shapes and materials in vogue. But if you want something original, starting from the shape up to his symbolic visualization? This project born from the need of a shaped table but also from the wish to have a characterizing element within the home environment. Its sinuous shape reminiscent of the one of an egg in the pan allows you to feel comfortable in every point, ergonomically preserving the spaces dedicated to the person and the possibility, as in all the round shapes, to adapt to more guests. Hence the “orientalizing” idea of ​​the rotating central yolk, a symbol of conviviality and sharing. With a central cylindrical foothold and two legs on wheels, the Omelette table can be easily moved to the center of the dining area and then repositioned to rest on the wall. In the first images, the version with the top coated in GetaCore® (a 3mm Solid Surface slab composed of one third of acrylic resin and two thirds of rock mineral) of white color laid at 45 ° with a shaped cut also on the wood underlying lacquered in the same color. The central “yolk” in orange lacquered wood rotates freely on a rotating support and can also be removed and used in its ‘wooden cutting board’ version. The central cylinder and two legs are in polished steel while the design wheels are from the OgTM Rotola Collection. The latest image concern the “mini Omelette” a customized version on request, with legs and cylinder in white lacquered iron and a simple top in textured matt lacquered Mdf.
