Rotomoulding art … Breaking the mould!
Design and art meet rotomoulding technology
Places of art hosting objects created using rotational moulding technology. A concept that immediately conjures up the vision of Enzos: abstract forms designed by the architects Anna Popelka and Georg Poduschka, in collaboration with the designers Margarita Navarro and Ludwig Slezak. Shapes that are open to a variety of interpretations by their users, stimulating them to come up with new ideas for their use. Robust, washable objects that can be combined – thanks to their surfaces, nooks and edges – in endless variations to form new and different structures. These pieces stand in the courtyard of Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier. During the summer, the Enzos become lounge chairs of an extravagant shape and colour, which can be hooked up to each other and laid out in various ways. During the winter, they are stacked up vertically to form igloos or booths selling hot punch, “cinemas in the cold”, “ice labyrinths” or fences. Veritable elements of urban design.
Rotomoulding technology results in aesthetically pleasing, high-performance, functional shapes, making it the ideal process for moulding any object. It allows you to manufacture pieces of the highest quality, with high yield and proven cost-effectiveness.
Rotomoulding can be used to manufacture open or closed parts of any size with either simple or complex shapes. The moulded parts can be coloured, translucent or transparent, flexible or rigid.
Rotomoulding is a competitive process, particularly for small- to medium-sized production lots. Progress in mouldable materials and process control tools has turned rotational technology into an attractive alternative to other manufacturing processes.
