Maniglia e Cerniera Frigo
Unlike boat building from scratch, the objects need to draw inspiration from a detail that nobody will see, but that is right there: it is the boat's DNA. Once this object is deduced its nature will also be understood. In my case, the underlying theme was a sort of flower that I took as an inspiration for the base of the wall lamps and that I then used as a matrix for conceiving other details. Working in this way, you realize that there is something about the refrigerator that belongs to the boat, even though it did not exist before (in fact, I didn't even know whether an icebox was in the original plan).When you see and grasp this simple handle, you spontaneously think 'this is not a new design object, it is an object that belongs to the boat' as it is part of the whole. This is how my attitude to the work I did should be understood, meaning that the new design work carried out on this boat is original. Original, I would say, from 1920, as if I took out a 'rib from the boat to create the new one'. This is certainly the difference between 'from scratch design' and what is the small margin, but in reality large enough, of design in refitting.
