Synthesis design was born in Torino in 1988 with Carlo and Giorgio Gaino as its founding partners. The studio has been working for years in the automotive, nautical and product design sector, and has worked with companies like Fiat Auto, Maserati, De Tomaso, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Nissan, Lamborghini, Bugatti and Matra in car design, designing (among others) the Maserati Barchetta, the De Tomaso Guarà and the Lancia ECV II. In product design, Synthesis has worked with Jacuzzi, Segafredo, Manconi, Video System and La San Marco. Close cooperation with the company has led to the development of unprecedented technological systems that harmonize the insertion of radiators in the room while simplifying installation at the same tine. The approach to design at the heart of the projects developed for Irsap: EVO, DEDALO, TRATTO, SAX and NET is a combination of creativity, experimentation with materials and a careful study of form and perception. Strong personality speaks to the senses with plays of light and shimmering finishes that also stimulate the sensation of touch in décor objects that complete interiors with a theatrical ambience in which the technical article and the technological system become protagonists in interior design.
LIGHT AND FUNCTIONALITY
The hidden light source creates an mass of light and shadow that perceptively detaches the radiator from the wall to make it appear suspended while also facilitating the insertion of the towels: the object form is intrinsic to its function without conditioning it – the potential for use is enclosed in its formal abundance.
PROPORTIONS AND LIGHT
The plane decomposes in classic proportions and creates wings of growing size rendered precious by the slices of light the planes form inside. Light strikes the differently surfaces differently to alter perception.
