Frisoli's Innovative Materials
Discover modern carbon fiber pieces by Frisoli: inspired by the fascinating silhouettes of the aircrafts crafted at the family manufacturing company, Romina and Michele started to design and produce modern furniture and decorative pieces with a unique style, using innovative raw materials.
We were inspired by the fascinating silhouettes of the aircrafts that we see everyday at our manufacturing company and by their ability to stir our innermost emotions. Our idea is to recreate the emotion of flying that is inherent to the objects designed and created for this specific purpose. Collections like “NOT FOR FLY” are intended to be integrated into our daily life, the name derived from a technical specification found on all aircrafts components that cannot be utilized for defective reasons.
The materials we employ are those used by the aeronautical industry, and include, but are not limited to: composite fibers, such as carbon fiber, fiberglass, kevlar, and other materials derived from phenol. Aircrafts frames are also made of metals such as aluminum and steel which are at the core of our manufacturing skills. The choice of materials derives mainly from our technological and manufacturing abilities. Our expertise in working with composite materials is grounded in the fact that carbon fiber is the main material used for airplane and helicopter components, which our company manufactures.
All our creations undergo the same production flow as aircrafts, pouring the emotion of the very process into each piece. Notwithstanding, the inspiration for our designs and aesthetic does not come from the aircraft shapes themselves, but rather draw from the artistic world. We are inspired by artists and artistic movements, with composite material used similarly to a painter’s canvas.
All manufacturing stages have a distinct appeal, but having to choose one, we would pick polymerization, which is the process during which the piece is “cooked” in an autoclave, where it hardens inside its mold. The fascination lies in seeing the fabric-style material come to life as a solid object.
What are your future projects? Can you tell us more?
Beginning next year, we will launch a new collection born from a collaboration with Domenico De Palo, a designer well-known for his previous collaborations with brands such as Antonio Lupi, Visionnaire, and Rugiano. At the same time, we will launch our new tableware collection in which we experiment new ways to craft fiberglass. We will keep you posted!
