Ianus is a decorative stone tub/fountain for indoor or outdoor use. The tub is the result of a digital simulative design and CNC fabrication with a 6 axis robot, milled from a monolithic block of Gray Shadow stone, caved in Turkey.

The design is characterized by a basin of a pure geometry, raised form the ground by a structural branching coming from a dynamic subdivision of the upper surface amplified by a gravitropic process. These irregular cave-like bodies that dig the mass, give a light base to the tub.

To amplify the reflections when filled with water, the pool is smooth polished, conversely the outer side is sanded to give a porous and soft touch to the external roots, this to better read the folds and curves.

Ianus è una vasca/fontana decorativa per uso esterno ed interno. La vasca è il risultato di una progettazione digitale simulativa e di una fabbricazione CNC con un robot a 6 assi, scavata da un blocco monolitico di pietra Gray Shadow, cavata in Turchia.

Il progetto è caratterizzato da un bacino dalla geometria pura, sollevata dal terreno da una ramificazione strutturale derivata da una suddivisione dinamica della superficie superiore, amplificata da un processo gravitropico. Questi corpi cavernosi irregolari che scavano la massa, forniscono una base leggera alla vasca.

Per amplificare le riflessioni quando piena di acqua, il bacino di raccolta è stato lucidato, al contrario la superficie esterna è sabbiata per dare porosità per le radici esterne, questo per rendere più leggibili pieghe e curve.
