In the urban domestic habitat, often isolated from the outside Nature, our affective connexion with the natural phenomena has weakened and lost in meaning.
The Atmospheric Portals were born from the research of a more intuitive and emotional connexion between us and these invisible natural forces through innovative meteorological instruments.
Gathered, Leone, Horace and Santorio create a unique ecosystem of moving objects which enliven the domestic space and allow people to sensitively feel the meteorological informations.
Engraved Brass, Epoxy Resin,
Horace : 363 x 400 mm
Leone : 95 x 72 x 340 mm
Santorio : 160 x 110 x 90 mm
