Nest & Tangled

Nest & Tangled

Almax combines aesthetic experimentation and technological innovation, to the discovery of rapid prototyping.

With a project born in collaboration with POLI.Design, Consortium of Politecnico di Milano University, and subsequently developed and engineered by the designer Jacopo Bianchi and the design studio About_Blank (with the designer Marco Febbo), Almax launches challenge to technological processes known to date in the production of mannequins.

The technical and expressive potential of rapid prototyping, have resulted in two new products, Nest and Tangled.

While Nest enhances the irregularity of a seemly random interlacement, inspired by the same natural randomness with which the birds create their own "nest", Tangled derives its charm from the winding and visually infinite path that surrounds the head of the mannequin.

Rapid prototyping opens the doors to a breakthrough in this area, with Almax acting as a pioneer in the experimentation of a process which extends beyond the limits of conventional production technologies, providing  a new language to the aesthetic and expressive communication for mannequins.
