The most recent expression of the continuous Rimadesio’s research on aluminium as unique material, able to create new forms and ensure the maximum structural strength with minimum thicknesses, even in large-sized compositions, Wind is the archetype of the bookcase in the new interpretation by Rimadesio: a modular system combining aesthetic lightness and technological innovation.
The focus of the project,entirely in aluminium, is represented by the union between extruded shelves and die-casting uprights, in central and terminal versions, which with their exclusive design define the aesthetics of the system. The main feature of Wind is therefore the connection between shelf and upright, characterized by rounded lines: a design that in its purity is able to combine geometric rigour with formal insights of great originality.
Vertical modularity of Wind is obtained by the connection of nylon fibre joints inserted into the uprights which grant the maximum stability. Closing element of each composition is the laminated lacquered mdf top, covered by a double aluminium plate. The adjustable feet, in satined nickel, is of the exclusive design. Wind is available with tempered glass back panels, equipped with an exclusive fixing device in a wide variety of finishings, representing a further possibility of customizing. Available in four widths and five heights, this bookcase is available in brown aluminium finishing, mat black and mat bianco latte.
The key to the new Rimadesio products is the exclusive Ecolorsystem collection which includes 50 lacquered glass choices in either the matte or glossy finish, in addition to 6 shades in the reflex finish with its shimmery metallic effect. Rimadesio’s ecological colours are made exclusively with non-polluting, next-generation water-based paints.
Rimadesio has always been a champion of sustainability, using only 100% recyclable glass and aluminium, and continuing to invest in technological innovations that reduce the environmental impact in its industrial production. Rimadesio production plants are entirely powered by solar energy. Green energy has been chosen for its practical use, based on cutting-edge technology. The company has achieved an important goal in 2011: zero emissions of CO2, a goal that was guaranteed by three photovoltaic plants, which give a total installed power of nearly 2 MWp, with yearly production of more than 2.000.000 kWh and an estimate of avoided emission of CO2 of more than 1.000 ton per year. The wood, composite materials and glass used are comply with the highest European standards.
The packaging Rimadesio uses is 100% micro-corrugated cardboard, in accordance with the standards of Legislative Decree 22/97, which incorporated into Italian law the European Directive 94/62/CE, requiring weight and volume to be reduced to a minimum and the absence of dangerous materials and completely recyclable packaging.
