- Architonic ID:
A tree, strong and welcoming, rises from the ground with its aluminium trunk and opens its branches, in perfect balance between lightness and resistance. Stainless but light, keeps your thoughts, games and dreams high.
THE TREE SAP
The sap that gives Fagus life and warmth runs with vertical and oblique lines outlining every profile. Sap and structure can be customized with various finishes, unconnected one from the other, multiplying the composition possibilities.
SOLID AND ESSENTIAL
The tree, slender and essential, climbs up to the ceiling. It is a real sculpture in the centre of the room that holds out its solid designed branches imitating the laws of nature.
With its discreet presence, Fagus furnishes with elegance, creating unique environments or dividing spaces with sober refinement.
FREEDOM TO CREATE
Everybody will be able to free his/her creativity and re-invent Fagus. It is possible to build various games with volumes, with an action similar to the one that makes biodiversity in nature.
Trunk: We used an aluminium alloy 6060 extruded with a 3,000 t press and a controlled temperature of 500°.The trunk is 32 mm thick.
Branch: We used an aluminium alloy 6060 extruded with a 3,000 t press and a controlled temperature of 500°.The branch is 16 mm thick.
Sap, trunk and branches: Our tree’s sap is made of veneered or varnished and can be customised. There are four veneer and two lacquer versions.
Veneer: Natural Oak, Dark grey Oak, Walnut, White-Ash
Lacquer: red and green
Branch – trunk anchoring To ensure maximum resistance, we used 8 mm steel joints. Fagus’s branches inclination are 72° and 64° 19/10 steel retention screws in
contact with aluminium 6060 create a natural self-locking system
Wall mount: We have studied a wall mount system with high retention nylon and steel dowels. Weight retention tests let you load the system with all the books you
want up to 10 kg per branch.
Ceiling mount system: The ceiling holding plate has nickel-plated steel pins and permits 20 mm technical excursion space for compensation. Each tree comes with a
kit of 2 high retention nylon and steel dowels for ceiling mount
