Albero delle visioni
Albero delle visioni

The three instruments which make up this entertaining piece of play equipment help us to realise how the microscope, telescope and periscope have redefined the limits of human sight. Nearby objects can be enlarged, far off objects seem closer, we can even see what is normally outside our field of vision. Tubular AISI 304 stainless steel structure Ø 200mm with top welded at 90°. The structure is fitted with viewers and a shelf for use with the microscope. depth height length M16AV304 58 c

Triangolo impossibile

This object seems unfamiliar until we look at it from one specific angle. The effect is surprising, and starts us thinking about the sophisticated way our brain and eyes work together to produce what we see. The structure consists of two AISI 304 stainless steel elements: a volumetric triangle and a viewfinder. The optical effect is obtained by positioning the two elements 8m apart. height depth length M16TI304 145 - 103 cm 85 - 10 cm 114 - 30 cm

An amusing piece of play equipment which invites us to try out different positions to see how these effect our speed. While we are learning the basics of rotation, we can’t help thinking about figure skaters, who change position to control their vertiginous spins.

A curious object consisting of a double cone which appears to roll uphill. The illusion is due to the cone’s center of gravity, which gets lower and lower as it moves towards the higher end of the rails.

Specchio anti-gravità
Specchio anti-gravità

A reflective surface, apparently much like any other. But here we can play, transform ourselves, even hover above the ground. And that’s not all: we can understand why this is possible while learning more about the reflective properties of light.
