Date: 2011
Milan (Italy)
Project: Giancarlo Zema Design Group
Client: MADE Expo
Consultants: Ceta + Nord Zinc
Status: Completed

Like a spiny but intriguing “Sea Urchin” this unusual urban sculpture designed by the architect Giancarlo Zema is realized using 150 stainless steel tubes and related plastic joints. A new artistic way to transform anonymous scaffolding elements in a colorful cane structure. A work to be installed in parks or green small ponds, as a symbol of a new reconstruction of the city, dedicated to the renovation and the eco-sustainability. The project has been realized thanks to the Steel Promotion Foundation of Milan and MADE Expo, and sponsored by a pool of leader companies in the constructuon field.
