Artisan art work: finishing touches

With nearly limitless design possibilities and creative flexibility, .exnovo remains committed to manufacturing beautiful works from the best materials, as well as innovative production processes. 3D printing technology and custom ordering ensure that no two items .exnovo makes are the same. .exnovo produces objects of practical use with artistic value. Its style is contemporary and unexpected, both novel and reflecting and/or reinterpreting historical designs and trends.

.exnovo’s slogan: “Signs of a new Civilization” represents its values and vision of: art in everyday spaces, cultural openness, green production, custom design, direct distribution, artisan craft and connected communities. They represent a fresh, promising and enriching future for manufacturing in Italy, and the potential for art, design, tradition and technology to fruitfully combine.

PRODUCTION

.exnovo manufactures lighting fixtures and features, a wide range of home accessories and many other objects using complex, precision technology to-order in small lots or for individual customers. It’s a flagship brand of the ‘3rd industrial revolution’ – a company that uses: technology, technique, materials and skills artfully, efficiently and sustainably. .exnovo balances continuously looking forward with a pared-down focus on quality, allowing them to create superior interior products.

Aesthetically, .exnovo’s style is symmetrically attune, elegant and light. They incorporate and reinterpret natural shapes and phenomena, from: chemical structure to planetary bodies, urban silhouettes, animals, bubbles and foam. .exnovo’s production processes are designed to minimize waste and pollution while allowing them to produce almost anything they or a client can imagine. Their 3D printing machines use a laser sintered material ideal for lighting applications, adaptable, tactilely pleasant, and completely recyclable.

Limitless design and creative potential. Production that frees the imagination from the constraints of molds, quotas and conventions.

TECHNOLOGY

.exnovo’s creations inspire awe and wonder at first glance. Their unusual shapes and materials have surprising, sometimes astonishing effects that delight the eyes and inspire curiosity. They’re able to produce these fascinating objects through the successful marriage of design, craftsmanship and technology, specifically, 3D printing. Sophisticated machines convert tridimensional CAD drawings into physical objects using lasers to solidify resins or powders, sculpting works of extreme complexity and precision, unimaginable before the development of this technology. The process, called ‘sintering,’ takes very little time and creates forms far beyond the limits of conventional machinery.

This approach isn’t simply novel, it eliminates the need for warehouse space and assembly lines and offers manufactures complete control, competence and versatility. It also allows artisan craftsmen to work in concert with a precision, reproducible technology.
