The reddish color of copper has a strong evocative power, that bring to mind the hot African landscapes, chief among them Tsavo East Park, in Kenya, with its limestone and clay earth. The elephants to protect themselves from pests will roll on the ground taking the fiery pigment. Hence the reference to antibacterial properties of copper, which inhibits the proliferation of bacteria on its surface, reducing the number of germs that you may transmit through '>http://contact.The'> stylized animal body, consists of three sheets satin copper internally in white lacquer, allowing the Led cold light from spreading into the environment. ……………………………………………………. Il colore rossastro del Rame ha un forte potere evocativo, tale da portare alla mente i caldi paesaggi africani, primo fra tutti il Parco del Tsavo Est, in Kenya, con la sua terra argillosa e calcarea. Gli elefanti per proteggersi dai parassiti si rotolano sul terreno assumendo il pigmento infuocato. Da qui il rimando alla proprietà antibatterica del rame, che inibisce il proliferarsi dei batteri sulla sua superficie, riducendo il numero di germi che si potrebbero trasmettere attraverso il contatto. Il corpo stilizzato dell’animale, è costituito da tre lastre in rame satinato, laccate internamente color bianco, così da permettere alla luce fredda del Led di diffondersi nell’ambiente.
